Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will only return to Stamford Bridge next season if Jose Mourinho can offer him first-team opportunities, according to the Mail Online.
The Belgium international is open to the idea of staying with Chelsea next season, but fears he will spend most of the campaign on the bench as Petr Cech's understudy.
The 21-year-old - who is now in his third loan spell with Atletico Madrid and has firmly established himself as one of the world's best young goalkeepers over the past two-and-a-half years - has delayed signing a contract extension with the Blues because he wants first-team assurances.
Chelsea are keen to tie Courtois down to a long-term contract, but the 6ft 6in shot-stopper would be happy to stay with La Liga title contenders Atletico if the west London outfit opt to stick by the 31-year-old Cech next season.
Speaking after picking up the Best Goalkeeper in La Liga trophy at the LFP awards earlier this week, Courtois told reporters: "I don't want to think about it yet. I will decide my future only in a few months."
