Chelsea boss demands that on-loan star returns - facing snub?

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho and Thibaut Courtois could be set for a major falling out this summer, as the Daily Mirror claims that they have contrasting opinions on where the latter should be plying his trade as of next season.

The paper claims that the the Chelsea boss is privately demanding that Courtois return to Stamford Bridge once his current loan-spell with Atletico Madrid reaches its end at the culmination of this campaign, though the youngster is keen to stay in Spain for another year.

The Blues’ need for the 21-year-old is heightened by the fact that current No.1 Petr Cech could be out for the start of next season, having dislocated his shoulder during the first-leg of the Champions League semi-final against Atletico. Courtois has enjoyed yet another sensational season at the Vicente Calderon, and as such he’s now being labelled as a transfer target for the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Therefore it’s clear to see why Mourinho wants him ushered back into the fold in west London, lest he risk losing the youngster to the temptations of staying in La Liga on a permanent basis.

However, with the Belgian stopper clearly interested in the idea of staying on with Atletico for another season it remains to be seen whether or not a rift could be wedged between player and manager where their intentions obviously collide.
