Thibaut Courtois to reveal next club decision soon

On loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has confirmed that he'll make a decision  regarding his future 'soon'.

The Belgian international has spent the last three season on loan with Atletico Madrid, but could return to west London at the end of the campaign.

Chelsea have previously insisted that this will indeed be the 21-year-old's last season with Atletico - however the Spanish league leaders remain hopeful of sealing a permanent switch.

While Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been linked with Courtois, he says his future is either with Chelsea or Atletico - and that he hopes to confirm where he'll end up soon.

“I’ll reveal my decision soon. I’ll let everyone know but for now I’m just focused on the games we have,” he said.

A return to Chelsea would put Courtois in direct competition with established number one Petr Cech, who at 31-years-old still has his best years ahead of him.

A potential swap deal for striker Diego Costa has been suggested - a move which could work out well for both clubs.

If Courtois does move back to Chelsea then he is looking to leave Spain on a high by helping Atletico Madrid win their first La Liga title since 1996.

Diego Simeone's side are one point clear of Barcelona and Real Madrid at the top of the table with 31 games gone.

They picked up a 2-1 win against Athletic Bilbao over the weekend - and Courtois says that result has given them the belief that they can stay the course.

“It was a tough game but we did well, getting three points from a very difficult place,” he continued.

“Many people thought we couldn’t win there and San Mames is very complicated. It’s a real blow on the table.

“It is seven finals that remain now. We’re going game by game and that’s the best way.

“They are very tough matches and it’s best to take each game on its own. But what we’re doing is very good.”

Atletico go up against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals tomorrow, while Chelsea take on Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.
