Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is interesting Real Madrid, who are contemplating an attempt to exploit contract negotiation troubles between the Belgian and his club.

According to El Confidencial, Jose Mourinho and Chelsea have been trying to begin talks with the 21-year-old over extending his contract but Courtois' representatives have been unable to gain assurances about his future with the Blues.

The report claims Real Madrid have been interested in Courtois for some time and are hoping they can secure his services if Chelsea are unable to resolve the situation.

Courtois joined the Londoners from Genk in 2011 and was immediately sent on loan to Atletico Madrid, where he is now into his third straight season as number one. First team football is crucial to any decision Courtois will make, as the report claims he is unconvinced over whether he will get any should he renew his contract.

Petr Cech is still the undisputed number one at Stamford Bridge and doesn't look like budging any time soon, so Courtois' international future could be jeopardised by not playing week in week out.

Real Madrid have their own goalkeeping worries, with the future of Iker Casillas being thrown into doubt after he was dropped by Carlo Ancelotti for the start of the season. A move for Courtois could well be with an eye to bringing in a long-term replacement for club captain.
