Chelsea attacker Diego Costa was interviewed on Cadena COPE and gave his thoughts on the rumors about his teammates Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard potentially joining Real Madrid next summer.

"We already know that Thibaut [Courtois] likes Spain very much, his family lives there. He's a great goalkeeper and Real Madrid need goalkeepers like him, but he's in a good place here also," said Costa. Rumors suggested that Courtois would be very keen on a move to Madrid and Costa appears to admit that very same thing. It will be interesting to see if Real Madrid submit an offer and whether Chelsea will be willing to negotiate or not.

However, Courtois is not the only Chelsea player on Madrid's radar, as attacker Eden Hazard has also been rumored to be on coach Zinedine Zidane's wishlist.

"Damn, if Madrid sign Hazard and Courtois...Poor Chelsea. He's the man, very, very good. Barcelona and Madrid will go after him sooner or later and they will tempt him. He's a calm and happy guy, people love him too much here. I hope he stays," said Costa about Hazard.
