Courtois to stay at Atletico
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has chosen to stay on loan at Atletico Madrid for the third consecutive season, according to Sky Sports.
Courtois, 21, joined Chelsea from Jupiler Pro League side K.R.C. Genk in the summer of 2011, but has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues, with Czech Republic international Petr ?ech currently keeping him out of the side. Chelsea jersey
Since replacing David de Gea, the Belgium international has been absolutely magnificent in goal for Atletico.
He has helped Los Colchoneros secure three trophies over the past two seasons: the Copa del Rey (2012-13), the UEFA Europa League (2011-12) and the UEFA Super Cup (2012).
After speaking with Jose Mourinho, the Belgian has decided to remain in Spain, where he will be guaranteed UEFA Champions League football next season.
“I’ve chosen to stay at Atletico,” said Courtois.
“I have to continue playing and at Chelsea there’s Cech who has always been a great goalkeeper.
“At Atletico I’m sure I can play and I can continue to be the first-choice keeper of the Red Devils [Belgium].
“In the course of the season, we will see if I return to London.” cheap jerseys
