Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set for talks over his future with Chelsea, but admits nothing will happen until after the World Cup. 

The 22-year-old has become one of the top goalkeepers in the world since his parent side allowed the youngster to join Spanish club Atletico Madrid in 2011. 

And after playing his part in winning the La Liga title and his impressive display against his owners in the Champions League semi-final, the 6ft 6in stopper could be set for a return to London. 

“We will talk after the World Cup, we’ll talk with Chelsea," he said. ‘We’ll see what happens, I can’t say right now. First the World Cup.”

The Belguim No.1 signed a five-year deal with Chelsea in 2011 after moving from native club side Genk, but is yet to feature for the Blues after making over 100 league appearances in La Liga. 

With Petr Cech still seen as the first choice between the sticks at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich may chose to cash in on his prize starlet. 

It is unlikely Courtois will be allowed to leave on loan once again, and it remains to be seen whether Atletico will be able to find the funds to bring him back to the Vicente Calderón Stadium next season.
