Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is reportedly on Barcelona's radar ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Belgian international, who joined Atletico Madrid on loan from Chelsea, has been in a remarkable form this season. He played against his parent club during the UEFA Champions League semi finals and proved to be vital in Atletico's triumph.
However, the Daily Star claims Barcelona are interested in recruiting the young, talented 'keeper this summer for €25million. There are strong indications that the Catalan giant's current goalkeeper, Victor Valdes might seek a new challenge elsewhere and Courtois seems to be the desired replacement.
Even though Atletico Madrid are also rumoured to be nursing the idea of retaining Courtois's services on a permanent basis, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho might be leaning towards the idea of making Courtois his number one goalkeeper next season, especially with Petr Cech's display of bad form this season.
It seems the post-World Cup transfer window will be a busy one for all the parties involved and Courtois will no doubt relish being coveted by the biggest clubs in Europe during the summer.
