Thibaut Courtois recently discussed his summer move from Chelsea to Real Madrid and insisted that he had ‘zero problems’ at Stamford Bridge, Goal reports.
The Belgian international was the subject of a transfer saga towards the end of the summer as he completed a late switch to Los Blancos after indicating to the Blues that he was keen on an exit.
Courtois’ contract was due to expire in the summer of 2019, which prompted Chelsea into agreeing to sell him to Real Madrid, who sought an upgrade on Keylor Navas in goal.
This led Chelsea to recruit Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao, making him the world’s most-expensive ever goalkeeper in the process.
Ahead of Real’s upcoming Champions League match against Ajax, Courtois discussed how his summer switch to the Bernabeu Stadium came about, insisting that there was no bad blood between him and Chelsea.
As quoted by Spanish news outlet ABC, he said:
I don’t know any player that wouldn’t want to play for Real Madrid. I was really happy at Chelsea, I felt completely integrated at the club and I had great teammates. Zero problems.
But Real Madrid came knocking and obviously when Madrid show an interest, it’s the biggest call you can get in football.
