Thibaut Courtois is looking forward to completing a potential move to Real Madrid, according to MARCA. Los Blancos have interest in the Belgian goalkeeper and could try to sign him next summer after the CAS announced that they will be allowed to register new players for the 2017-2018 season.

MARCA's report suggest that Courtois has told his inner circle that he sees himself playing for Madrid very soon, and both his family and the player are very happy about a potential return to the Spanish capital.

However, it will not be easy for Real to sign him away from Chelsea, as his current deal expires in 2019 and Roman Abramovich will be reluctant to sell the 24-year-old goalie and the undisputed starter of the current leaders in the Premier League table.

Real Madrid are looking to upgrade the goalkeeper position as both Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla are already 30 years old, so they think Thibaut Courtois is the perfect man for the job as he's both ready and young enough to play under a Madrid shirt for years to come.
