Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois plays down speculation of a transfer to Real Madrid in the summer.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has cooled speculation linking him with a transfer to Real Madrid.

The Belgian youngster is currently coming to an end of a season-long deal with Real's rivals Atletico Madrid.

Reports have claimed that Real coach Jose Mourinho has been impressed with the 19-year-old's form in La Liga this season.

However, Courtois has insisted that he is just concentrating on the remainder of the campaign with Atletico.

"These things appear in the press, but I don't know anything," he told AS. "To me the most important thing is Atletico, I am on loan from Chelsea and belong to the English club, but I am with Atletico and am just enjoying myself."

Courtois joined the Blues last summer from Racing Genk.
