Chelsea goalkeeper still on Barcelona radar

Published Add your comment

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is still on the radar of La Liga champions Barcelona, according to le10sport.

Courtois, who is currently in the middle of his third successive loan spell with Atletico Madrid, has made it clear that he will only return to Stamford Bridge if Jose Mourinho can guarantee him first-team opportunities.

However, it's currently unclear whether the Portuguese coach will stick by the 31-year-old Petr Cech or put his faith in the returning Courtois, who is ten years younger.

Barcelona have yet to sign a replacement for Victor Valdes, who will leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.

However, they have been strongly linked with Borussia Mönchengladbach shot-stopper Marc-André ter Stegen.

But the Catalan giants could yet make a move for Courtois, who picked up the Best Goalkeeper of the Year trophy at the LFP awards last week, if they believe Mourinho does not intend on using the Belgium international next season.
