11 July 2018

The 17-year-old joined the Premier League club last summer from amateur French side Poitiers after being linked to them for years and went on to feature for the Blues' Under 18 team.

Thibaut Courtois has refused to confirm he will stay at Chelsea after being asked about a potential move to Real Madrid this summer.

Chelsea are preparing a massive £62m transfer bid for AS Roma and Brazil goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, who also happens to be a Liverpool target.

Chelsea and Roma are interested in signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to Sky sources.

He also dropped another nod to his time in Madrid - albeit at Atletico rather than Real, to whom he is now being linked - saying: "I have learned to suffer at Atlético, it is what it has been for us today, Japan are a good team, tactically they have been very good, suddenly you look at 2-0, we have believed a lot".

On whether he will remain at Stamford Bridge, he added: "I'm not going to talk about that now".
