Bertrand joined Villa on loan during the January transfer window and the left-back has impressed during his short time at Villa Park.

Reports have suggested that Villa boss Paul Lambert is keen to make the move permanent, but Mourinho has cooled talk of Bertrand leaving Chelsea on a full-time basis, suggesting the 24-year-old could have a future at Stamford Bridge.

"He has a future at Chelsea," said Mourinho. "A future and a past. Of course he has a future.

"The decision to let him go to Villa was good because he's playing and what he needed was to play every game.

"But maybe next season he is with us."

Villa will be unable to call upon Bertrand this weekend as he is ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea, in a game which is live on Sky Sports 1HD on Saturday at 5.30pm.

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.
