Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he is happy at Chelsea despite the consistent manner of his performances at Stamford Bridge seemingly attracting the attention of Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Although he first signed for the Blues from Genk in July 2011, Belgium international Courtois is in his first full season in the Premier League after proving his significant worth during three hugely valuable seasons on loan with Atletico.
Having ousted the long-serving Petr Cech as Chelsea's first-choice stopper under Jose Mourinho, the 22-year-old has continued to go from strength-to-strength over recent months and has found himself linked with a potential switch back to Madrid as Real scour the continent in search of a long-term replacement for Iker Casillas.
Courtois does not appear particularly interested in such a transfer, however, claiming he is perfectly content where he is having only signed a five-year contract extension as recently as September 2014.
"I am happy at Chelsea. I have four years on my contract," he was quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard in response to a question regarding Real's supposed interest.
"I had great years at Atletico, I could dream thanks to that club, but in my career I always aimed to the top."
Courtois, left on the substitutes' bench for the recent trip to Leicester City, was back between the posts for Chelsea on 3 May as they clinched a first title since 2010 with three games to spare following a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard notched the goal that sealed success and Mourinho's side now face matches against Liverpool, West Brom and Sunderland before embarking upon a trophy parade later this month.
Real, meanwhile, currently trail fierce rivals Barcelona by two points in La Liga and suffered defeat in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Juventus thanks to a second-half penalty from Carlos Tevez.
David de Gea appears to remain their primary target in the race to replace Casillas, with the Spaniard's current contract due to expire next summer and no new deal yet agreed.
The most recent speculation suggests that Manchester United could retain the services of disappointing striker Radamel Falcao in order to help with negotiations given that both players are represented by the same agent in Jorge Mendes.
