Courtois’ future after CL final

Thibaut Courtois has claimed that he will only discuss his future after Saturday’s Champions League final.

The Belgian goalkeeper is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid from Chelsea, but contrary reports in the British and Spanish Press have indicated that he could stay at Vicente Calderon, or he could return to his parent club for next term.

However, the shot-stopper, who was speaking after Atleti claimed their first domestic title since 1996, has insisted that he is only focused on the European Cup clash with Real Madrid at the weekend.

“It's a great feeling to be champion of Spain,” he told The Guardian.

“I am not sure yet what happens next season. We have the Champions League final and then the World Cup, so now is not the time to think of the future.

“I have two years contract [left] with Chelsea, so we will see.

"If I move somewhere, I will play. With my age, what I want, the most important thing for me, is to play.

“We will see what happens. But Petr [Cech] is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, he won the golden glove in the Premier League, and I have a lot of respect for him, so we will see what Chelsea decide and what they plan to do. You guys will see the decision [then].

“When I joined [Atlético] three years ago it was not sure I would stay three years. I stayed one year and said I would see.

“We won the Europa League, the European Super Cup and then the next year it was the Copa del Rey and now it's the [League] title. It was unthinkable to achieve all of those things.”
