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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
