Chelsea are ready to sacrifice one of their most promising youngsters in order to land Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Blues will allow goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to join the Spaniards permanently if it means they can secure Falcao’s signature.

Chelsea are likely to face competition from Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City, according to the report and the Belgium international could be key to winning the battle.

Courtois has been on loan at Atletico for the past two seasons, going straight there after Chelsea completed his signing from Racing Genk in 2011.

The 20-year-old has expressed a desire to stay with the Vicente Calderon outfit, though he would be the natural successor to Petr Cech as Stamford Bridge number one.

Chelsea will be reluctant to let such a highly rated player leave but the report claims owner Roman Abramovich is desperate sign Falcao this summer and is ready to let Courtois leave.
