Thibaut Courtois

Chelsea are reportedly mulling over whether to bring back Thibaut Courtois this summer, and send Petr Cech to La Liga side Atletico Madrid.


The Blues own both goalkeepers, and have found themselves in a precarious situation with regards to the 21-year-old Courtois, who has never played a game for the club, and has spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

The Belgian number one is growing tired of the insecurity of a rolling loan deal, and wants his parent club to make a decision regarding his future, with Real Madrid and Barcelona reportedly joining Atletico in wanting to permanently prise the player off of Chelsea.
