As reported by the Mirror, Courtois said: 'I have a certain preferred destination.

Thibaut Courtois has admitted he has a "preference" to where his future lies but has not clarified whether that is Chelsea or Real Madrid. "I'll see, my children are very important to me, I've always said it, and they live there".

While he wants to sort out his future, the 26-year-old said the World Cup was his focus.

"Returning to Madrid? I am not going to speak about my future but after the World Cup I will see".

'The most important thing is my children and I'll decide what's best for me in everything'.

The Denmark worldwide has consistently been one of the best shot-stoppers in the Premier League for the past few seasons, and was key in his nation's progress to the last 16 of the World Cup.

Chelsea are ready to move for Roma's Brazilian number one Alisson if, as expected, they sell Thibaut Courtois this summer.

It has been well documented that Courtois' children are based in Spain and he would prefer to be closer to them on a regular basis.

But with his contract entering its final year, speculation increases around where he will be playing come the end of this summer's transfer window, which is the final transfer window where Chelsea could demand a fee for him.

Already, both teams were hunting for other possible targets before Schmeichel's excellence at the ongoing global football fiesta, won over both teams.
