That’s according to The Sun, who say the Spanish giants are confident of landing the Belgium stopper.
They add that a bumper pay cheque may not even be needed to bring the 24-year-old back to La Liga.
“Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois feels at home in Madrid”
Courtois reportedly feels at home in Madrid – more so than his native Belgium – and is determined to move back to the Spanish capital.
The Sun say the Chelsea star – who has a Spanish fiancée – is open to joining Real or Atletico Madrid.
Reports suggested the Blues will offer Courtois big bucks to stay at Stamford Bridge but the keeper is ready to consider a big offer from Spain.
He is happy under Antonio Conte at Chelsea but he is open to a La Liga return.
Real have been in the hunt for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea in recent years but they’ve given up on the former Atletico star and are fully focused on Courtois.
