Atletico Madrid target summer move for Chelsea star

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has confirmed that his club will do as much as they can in order to keep Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois past the end of the season.

The Belgian starlet has been in sensational form for the La Liga high-flyers this campaign, rounding off an incredibly productive three-year loan spell which has attracted the attention of a host of top clubs. Whilst the Blues remain his parent club for the moment, numerous rumours have suggested that the 21-year-old would be unwilling to return to Stamford Bridge unless he’s offered the No.1 jersey currently held down by the long-serving Petr Cech.

That situation could perhaps cause friction between player and club, and Atletico will no doubt be hoping they can take advantage of any issues that do arise. According to quotes gathered by Mundo Deportivo today, that’s at least what Cerezo is planning to do.

As relayed by TuttoSport, the Atletico chief told Mundo: “Our goal is to lose the least possible number of players. Courtois? Chelsea, we had lent for one year but he's been here for three years with us. We'll try to hold on to him with all our strength."

Courtois will most probably be left to make his own decision as to where he plays his football next term. With things going well at the Vicente Calderon however, there’s reason enough to suggest he may be inclined to listen to the voices wanting him to stay.
