Chelsea 'keeper Thibaut Courtois: My future will be decided by March

On-loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says he is hoping that his future will be resolved in the next month.

The Belgian has been on loan with Atletico Madrid for the past two seasons.

The Chelsea shotstopper has previously hinted that he would be happy to stay in Spain permanently. 

Atleti boss Diego Simeone has also claimed he would be willing to pay £20 million in order to keep Courtois at the Vicente Calderon.

However Chelsea are unlikely to let the talented youngster go so easily, and reportedly view him as the long-term replacement for Petr Cech.

The problem for Courtois however is that Cech shows no signs of slowing up and could hold on to the number one jersey at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future - leaving Chelsea with a difficult decision to make.

Either way, Courtois says he is growing tired of the speculation and wants his future decided as as soon as possible.

"I’m not sure yet whether or not I’ll be going back to London at the end of the league season," he said.

“Petr Cech is a very good goalkeeper. I don’t see myself going to a club and not playing.

“Together with Chelsea, I have to seriously review the future. I know Atletico Madrid is set on keeping me. I’m hoping to know more by March.”
