Thibaut Courtois takes a swipe at his former Chelsea team-mates

Real Madrid News Thibaut Courtois has aimed aim at Chelsea

I like it, the games are played at a high tempo.

The Italy international's agent Joao Santos confirmed that the player had agreed terms with the Premier League champions, but that City and Napoli failed to come to an agreement before Chelsea swooped in.

Despite initially getting overwhelmed by Pep Guardiola's suave artistes in the Community Shield, Jorginho quickly turned conductor in the Blues's orchestra and quickly underlined his importance for Sarri's system.

The Brazil-born Italy global has hit the ground running at the west London club, scoring one goal in four Premier League starts for Sarri's men so far.

A Cristiano Ronaldo-less Real Madrid have kicked off their league season with three wins on the trot and Thibaut Courtois made his debut this weekend in a 4-1 over Leganes.

"When you see the [Champions League] draw on TV, the groups and your team is not there, I felt like smashing the TV set", Alonso told Spanish radio station Onda Cero. "We tried, we believed it was done but at the last turn he decided on Chelsea".

The FA Cup winners have many key players to aid their targets for the season, but none more important than Belgium star Eden Hazard, who was strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Alonso, however, never felt like the Belgium global would leave.

"Of course, this was not the first time I've played here".

The Spain worldwide added: "I never saw myself away from Chelsea this summer". Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival has been even more beneficial, and I hope I can go back one day. "I'm very happy there".

Eden Hazard was another who was linked with a Chelsea exit, with Madrid also tipped as the most likely club to move for the 27-year-old, but he ultimately chose to stay put. Unless the club had wanted to sell me, my wish was and has always been to stay.
