Thibaut Courtois: Meeting on future

Thibaut Courtois: Meeting on future

The Belgian number one has been wonderful for Atletico Madrid during his near three-year loan spell with the Spanish club.

After signing for Chelsea in 2011 from Genk, he was immediately loaned to Atletico - where he has stayed ever since.

During his time in Spain, the 21-year-old has established himself as one of the finest young goalkeepers in world football.

Jose Mourinho has already stated he expects Courtois back at Chelsea this summer, but the player is yet to confirm his own intentions.

Reports claim that Atletico are desperate to keep him and could offer top striker Diego Costa or midfield ace Koke in exchange.

With Petr Cech still very much number one at Stamford Bridge, it remains to be seen what Chelsea will do with Courtois.

And the player's father hopes matters will be resolved next month.

"We have a meeting with Chelsea and we will be talking about everything with them," Thierry Courtois told the Daily Express.

"It is too early to make a definite decision yet. We have to negotiate with Chelsea.

"Thibaut has been doing very well with Atletico but there are still three months of the season to go, and a lot can happen in that time."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
