Belgium is regarded as the best young keeper in the world.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has ruled out the possibility of joining La Liga giants Real Madrid at the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The highly rated young Belgium international has been heavily linked with los Blancos in recent weeks as speculation continues to mount as to where the shot stopper may end up playing his football next season.
Courtois moved to the west London club from Belgium outfit Genk on a five-year deal in July 2011, however, in the intervening three-year period the player has yet to feature for the Blues in a competitive match.
Instead, the 21-year-old has been shipped out on loan to La Liga high flyers Atletico de Madrid on season-long loans for the past three campaigns in a row.
And now, ahead of Sunday’s huge Madrid derby at the Vincente Calderon, Courtois has poured cold water on the recent stories linking him with a possible switch to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, telling Spanish sports daily AS: “I don’t know. Those are rumours. What I know is that I have a contract with Atletico until June and then two more years at Chelsea.
“If any offer comes in, Chelsea will decide if they want to let me go. I don’t think that will be the case. For now, there are only two teams to me: Atletico and Chelsea.”
