Thibaut Courtois is excited about his Real Madrid future

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes he and Real Madrid are only going to continue to improve after signing a new long-term contract with the club.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are 10/11 to win La Liga and are priced up at 20/1 to claim the 2021/22 Champions League.

Long-term stay for Courtois

Courtois has signed a five-year deal that will keep him with Los Blancos until 2026.

The Belgian has made 130 appearances in all competitions for Real after signing from Chelsea in 2018.

I hope to maintain and surpass the level I reached last season.

The 29-year-old turned out for the London club 154 times, becoming number one ahead of Petr Cech in 2014 following three successful seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

Courtois has also made 89 appearances for his country, including outings at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups and the 2016 and 2020 European Championships and was the youngest ever goalkeeper to represent Belgium when he made his debut in 2011.

Trophy goal

Real Madrid finished second in La Liga last season, just two points behind their local rivals Atletico.

The Whites got their season underway with a 4-1 victory over Alaves on Saturday and, after agreeing fresh terms, Courtois took to his official website to discuss his reaction to signing the new deal and his aim to win trophies this season.

"This is going to be my fourth season at the club of my dreams," he said. "It's an honour to have the opportunity to play for all these trophies. Personally, I hope to maintain and surpass the level I reached last season.

"This extension is a reward for my efforts over the past year. It encourages me to work even harder and give my all to the best club in the world."
