Thibaut Courtois: 'Real Madrid do not need January signings'

Courtois: 'Real do not need new signings'

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois claims that Real Madrid do not need to sign any new players during the January transfer window.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has said that Real Madrid do not need to enter the transfer market for a new striker in January.

While Karim Benzema has netted 12 times in La Liga this season, the Frenchman has rarely been helped out by his teammates, with Sergio Ramos currently the second top goalscorer with three goals.

After back-to-back stalemates with Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao respectively, question marks have been raised over Real's form in the final third.

However, Courtois feels that "bad luck" has contributed to Los Blancos coming up short in terms of goals in recent weeks.

The Belgian is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "We have players who can score goals too. Bad luck and good goalkeepers, it's a bit of everything at the moment.

"I don't have an explanation for why the ball doesn't want to go in, but I trust that my teammates can score at any time. Karim is outstanding, he has scored a lot of goals already. I don't think a signing is necessary, I fully trust the team."

Real have scored 33 goals from 18 matches in La Liga during the current campaign.
