Chelsea champion Thibaut Courtois rules out Real Madrid switch

The Belgian 'keeper is delighted at winning the Premier League with Chelsea, and has rubbished talk of leaving Stamford Bridge.

Having clinched the Premier League title on Sunday, with a narrow victory against Crystal Palace, there was a party atmosphere at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking with Spanish radio network, Cadena COPE,  after celebrations had calmed, Thibaut Courtois admitted he was "super happy" at achieving his first Premier League winners medal.

A second league title in consecutive seasons, on the back of having won La Liga with Atletico Madrid last season, 22-year-old Courtois added that he's enjoyed "two wonderful years," then enthused: "I can only dream about something like this."

At the suggestion Chelsea have dominated throughout the league campaign, the Belgian reflected: "Right from the start of the season, we've played really good football. Later on perhaps, we didn't play the prettiest football at times, but we've defended well and attacked well, winning games; and that's what matters."

Asked about the overall balance, with Chelsea having now won their second trophy of the season, Courtois added: "We've also won the League Cup, so the balance is really good. The only bad thing was our early exits from the Champions League and FA Cup."

Questioned for his thoughts on the title race in La Liga, Courtois believes "Barcelona are a step ahead" - given their two point advantage, over Real Madrid. However, he warned that the Catalan side must take points against his former club, Atletico Madrid, which will be no easy task.

Mundo Deportivo have recently speculated that Courtois is unsettled in London, and might be interested in a switch to Real Madrid. However, when quizzed about his future, he stressed his desire to remain with Chelsea, concluding: "I signed a four year contract and I'm fine here."
