Cape Town - Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he won't be playing at Real Madrid next season as he is a key player at Stamford Bridge and very happy to stay.

The Belgium international has been linked with a move to Los Blancos since last term, and it has been reported that they may pursue him if they fail to sign Manchester United's David de Gea.

However, Courtois, who spent three years on loan at Atletico Madrid before becoming the Blues' new number one in 2014, isn't interested in joining the Spanish giants.

"I don't see myself at Real Madrid. I see myself at Chelsea, the club that six years ago saw me playing in Belgium and gave me the opportunity to sign for them," he told Cadena Ser Radio.

"They also allowed me to be three years at Atletico, which helped me to be the keeper that I am now. I feel that I'm key to the team, I'm very happy at Chelsea, and I don't see myself anywhere else."
