Real Madrid target Courtois: Chelsea will be stronger next season

Thibaut Courtois is backing Chelsea to bounce back from their horror title defence.

The Blues finished 10th on the Premier League table in 2015/16 following their premiership triumph the previous season but according to goalkeeper Courtois, sanity will be swiftly restored at Stamford Bridge.

Belgium international Courtois, who is being linked with a proposed summer move to Real Madrid, has indicated that he is ready to stay with Chelsea and help the West London return to the top under incoming manager Antonio Conte.

"When a big team has a season like that, everybody learns from it," Courtois told Sky Sports.

"Not only the players and manager but the directors, fans, everybody. We will be back stronger next year."
