Cape Town - Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he has not had contact with Real Madrid over a potential transfer and insists he is happy at Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old is reportedly on Los Blancos' radar, and Don Balon has claimed that he wants to return to Madrid, where he played for Atletico, but he has dismissed the reports.

He told Cadena Cope: "I never had anything with Real Madrid. I did not see anything published, but I never had any contact with Real Madrid.

"I am happy at Chelsea. Everything is going very well - it is a great club. There is no reason not to be happy at Chelsea. You never know what will happen in the future, but at the moment I am very well, in a very good atmosphere."

Courtois added: "There was never any talk about a possible return to Atletico. Oblak is doing very well and I am happy about that. These are rumours that come out from people who do not know anything."

The goalkeeper has kept five consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League, helping the Blues climb to second position in the standings.
