Thibaut Courtois: Third loan spell with Atletico Madrid

The Belgium international arrived at Stamford Bridge from Genk in 2011 but has yet to make a first-team appearance.

He had expressed his wish to stay with the La Liga club after playing a key role in the club's 2011/12 Europa League triumph and last term's Copa del Rey success.

"Thibaut Courtois will return to Atletico Madrid next season after an agreement was reached between our club and Chelsea for him to play on loan for another year," read a statement on Atletico's official website on Saturday.

Courtois conceded the fewest number of goals in the league last season, beaten just 29 times in 37 appearances, to help ensure Champions League qualification.

"I am very happy because it was what I wanted," he said.

"I have always said that I wanted to continue at Atletico next season and take part in such an important competition as the Champions League after we qualified for it in such a brilliant way.

"I am only thinking about continuing to enjoy the incredible support that we have and I hope we can continue to bring them a lot of happiness."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
