Courtois: Spain return attractive to me

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has admitted ‘a return to Spain is attractive’ for him to be closer to his two children in Madrid.

The 25-year-old’s deal at Stamford Bridge expires in June 2019 and his kids are being raised in the Spanish capital, where he spent three years with Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014.

“A return to Spain is attractive for me,” Courtois told TV station La Sexta.

“My own personal situation is the main driver for my desire to return and if that does not happen now, then it will in a few years from now.

“Right now I’m calm and happy at Chelsea, when you play football at this level you must concentrate only on the games and not on anything off the pitch.

“I don’t want to focus on contract talks as it will impact on my performances.”

Courtois has been linked with a future move to Real Madrid.
