Courtois: It’s Atleti or Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois has insisted that rumours of a move to Real Madrid are false, claiming that his future is at Atletico Madrid or Chelsea.

The goalkeeper is on loan at the Colchoneros until the end of the season, where he would normally go back to his parent club in west London.

However, after a series of astonishing displays, the Belgium international has intimated that he will only go back to Stamford Bridge if he’s the number one choice.

With Petr Cech still performing, that may not be an option for the youngster – thus leading to rumours that Los Blancos could make a move.

Courtois though, has claimed that he will either stay at Vicente Calderon, or move to the Premier League.

“If the rumours [about Real Madrid] are not true, then they are not true. The one thing I have always said is this – it's Atletico or Chelsea," he told Castilla La Mancha TV.

“I'm very happy to be with Atleti, my desire is to play and if I can't do that at Chelsea and I can continue here, I'll be very happy.

“I've never spoken with Mourinho. At the moment Chelsea cannot guarantee me a place in goal, because [Petr] Cech is there, he is playing well and is one of the best keepers in the world.”
