The goalkeeper is said to be very grateful for his years at Stamford Bridge, but thinks that his time in the Premier League is over.

That is, at least according to what Marca reports, the goalkeeper's wish to go back to Madrid, where this time, he would play for Real instead of Atletico.

Los Blancos are also keen on landing Courtois in 2018 after losing the battle to lure David De Gea away from Manchester United.

But he's not the only one after a move to Real Madrid, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, determined on signing the Belgian shot-stopper as a replacement for Keylor Navas. However, according to Marca and Diario Gol, Courtois is open to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, as he believes that he would have a better chance of winning the Champions League with Real.

Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford to play Monday night vs. Bears
In Keenum's last two starts Rudolph had a total of three catches for 38 yards, including just one red zone target. Other inactive Bears: quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Taquan Mizzell, and nose tackle John Jenkins.

Thibaut Courtois has dropped a bombshell on Chelsea chiefs.

In addition, personal matters mean that a return to Spain would be his preferred next career move, although the Blues will not want to lose a man who is rightly considered among the world's top five goalkeepers at present. Courtois had a successful loan spell at Atletico Madrid and the Madrid club's city rivals could offer a new challenge for the talented goalkeeper.

Faced with this situation, Courtois will continue to wait and even confessed on a recent visit to the Spanish capital that "I hope to return soon".

His current deal expires in 2019 and if he refuses to sign a new one then the Blues could be forced into a sale as early as next summer.
