Atletico Madrid loanee Thibaut Courtois will meet with Chelsea next month to discuss his long-term future in west London, according to his father, reports Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper has been earning rave reviews at the Vicente Calderon, where he has played on loan for the past three seasons.

Having now established himself as one of the most highly rated stoppers on the continent, the Belgium international is ready to return to Stamford Bridge and challenge Petr Cech for the number one spot.

Jose Mourinho has already made it clear that he expects Courtois to be back at Chelsea next season, but the player is yet to make a decision, as it's understood he would be unwilling to return as back-up to the veteran custodian.

"We have a meeting with Chelsea and we will be talking about everything with them," Thierry Courtois was quoted by 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."

Recent reports have suggested that Diego Simeone is desperate to keep Courtois in La Liga, and is willing to offer either Diego Costa or Koke in exchange for the talented young goalkeeper.
