Real Madrid president Florentino dismisses PSG threat for Courtois deal

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is calm over competition from PSG for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi is willing to compete for the Belgium international this summer and there were claims in France last week of club officials meeting with Courtois and his father in London on Monday.

However, El Confidencial says Perez is calm over the developments, confident Courtois' ambition is to return to Madrid, where he spent three seasons with Atletico. The presence of his ex-wife and two children in the city is also a source of Perez's confidence.

Interestingly, it's also suggested Perez has been able to persuade coach Zinedine Zidane to support the move, despite his loyalty to current Real No1 Keylor Navas.
