The Belgian goalkeeper has spent the last two seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid since joining Chelsea from Racing Genk in June 2011.

The 21-year-old has already played for his country at senior level and is seen as a long-term replacement for Petr Cech, but has earned glowing reviews during his stint at the Estadio Vicente Calderon.

He said: "Chelsea have the young players that maybe in two or three years' time can win everything.

"I signed with Chelsea, not just because it is a big club but also because of its commitment to young players. I want to be part of Chelsea history."

However, Courtois is open-minded as to whether or not he will get the chance to impress with his parent club.

He said: "Chelsea have always been very fair with me and they are also smart people and they know that I need to play.

"I don't know where that will be but I do know I have proved myself in the two years I have been here (in Madrid)."

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.
