Thibaut Courtois has downplayed talk of a move to Real Madrid and instead wants to sign a new Chelsea contract.

The Belgium goalkeeper, who spent three seasons on loan in the Spanish capital with Real's city rivals Atletico, has established himself as the undisputed No 1 at Stamford Bridge.

He has two years remaining on his current Chelsea deal and would like an extension but says negotiations have not started yet.

"I have two more years of contract left. In London everything is going well for me and I am happy," Courtois told Spanish station Cadena Ser.

"At the moment we have not talked about a renewal. Now we are focused on winning the league, even though we have a ten-point advantage.

"Both the club and the coach want to keep calm now and not think about renewals.

"We will see at the end of the season whether they offer me something, but at the moment there is no offer. Would I like to be offered a new deal? Sure.

On reported interest from Real Madrid, Courtois added: "I don't see myself at Real Madrid. I see myself at Chelsea. I feel like a key player within the team.

"I am very calm because since the first year I have heard the same things. Here at Chelsea we are battling for the league and FA Cup and I am content."
