Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has admitted he is still unsure over who he will be playing for next season.

The Belgian shotstopper has spent the last three seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid, helping them claim their first La Liga title since 1996 after securing the draw they needed against Barcelona on the last day of the season yesterday.

Rumours regarding Courtois future have been rife in recent weeks. Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has admitted he would like the keep the Chelsea youngster at the Vicente Calderon on a permanent basis, while Blues boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly willing to make him his number one next season at the expense of Petr Cech.

It has also been claimed that he could form part of a deal that takes striker Diego Costa to Stamford Bridge.

Amidst all the speculation, Courtois himself admits that his future remains unclear - and is unlikely to be resolved until after the World Cup.

"I'm not sure yet. We'll see what happens. First of all, we've still got an important game next week and then afterwards it's the World Cup," he said.

"I don' think it's the proper time to think about the future. My contract is with Chelsea so we will see what happens."

The on-loan Chelsea 'keeper will line up for Atletico in the Champions League final against Real Madrid next weekend, having helped defeat his employers at the semi-final stage.
