Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois has dismissed rumours linking him with a summer move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, claiming that he's happy at Stamford Bridge.
As reported by the London Evening Standard, Courtois, who only recently signed a new deal with the west London outfit, has admitted that he had some great years in the Spanish capital, but isn't looking to move back to La Liga anytime soon.
Courtois, of course, spent three years on loan at Real Madrid's rivals Atletico before becoming Chelsea's No.1 at the start of this campaign.

And the goalkeeper, starring in his debut Premier League season, has enjoyed a fine campaign between the sticks, playing a key role in the club's title success.
It appears, then, that he will be sticking around at the club for some time to come, as he told reporters: "I am happy at Chelsea. I have four years on my contract.

"I had great years at Atletico, I could dream thanks to that club, but in my career I always aimed to the top."
This will ultimately come as great news for the Chelsea faithful, who have watched the young 'keeper put in a number of outstanding displays this term.
He's settled to life in England admirably and it's certainly not surprising that he's now replaced Cech as the main man between the sticks.
Real Madrid, then, may well have to step up their interest in Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, as it's seemingly unlikely that they will be able to persuade Courtois to join them.
There's no doubt about it, Courtois has the potential to go on to emulate Cech at Stamford Bridge over the next decade. Cech, of course, will eventually leave Stamford Bridge as a club-legend after playing huge roles in Premier League titles and Champions League successes.
Courtois - much like his predecessor - is a calm and reliable member of the team, who oozes class and will no doubt go from strength-to-strength in the years to come.
In fact, at just 22-years of age, the youngster has the ability to become the best goalkeeper in the world, and will only excel under the guidance of Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge. He may well win it all in west London.
