Thibaut Courtois denies any agreement with Real Madrid because he lives in the real world

Surprise! Said no one ever.

On last night's premiere episode of the COSMOS reboot, Neil deGrasse Tyson told us that there are excellent theoretical and philosophical reasons why many now believe that we live in a multiverse or perhaps even a collection of multiverses.  Our universe, like the planets, stars, galaxies within, is not a singular creation.  There are many quite like it, but this one is ours.  We can easily recognize ours because it's the one with Earth.

But could there be a possibility of quantum events that allow atoms, energies, and realities to transfer between universes?  I'm starting to think that the Spanish football press may have come out of just such a portal.  After all, they claimed that Thibaut Courtois has (illegally) signed an agreement with Real Madrid over two years before his Chelsea contract is set to expire.  Tell me of your homeworlds, Cadena Ser!

It's totally false. I couldn't have said anything like that to Miguel Ángel Gil Marin because it's not true. I don't have any agreement with any club. Everyone knows that I have a contract with Chelsea and I am happy with Atletico.

Surprise!

As you were, then.

P.S.: Meanwhile, Atlético apparently have not given up in trying to keep Courtois beyond this season.  This is going to be a long summer of goalkeeper rumors one way or the other.
