Thibaut Courtois has revealed his future was clear until he faced parent club Chelsea in the Champions League semi-final.
The Belgian shot-stopper has been a Chelsea player since the summer of 2011 but has yet to play for the club, instead spending three seasons on loan with La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid.
Having developed into one of the finest goalkeepers in the world during that time, Jose Mourinho is under pressure to make a decision on his future. He can either send him out on loan again and keep Petr Cech as his first choice or bring Courtois back to Stamford Bridge and sacrifice Cech.
It is still unclear where Courtois will be next season but, according to the player, that is down to the fact he played against the Blues in the Champions League final.
Speaking to La Dernière Heure, the 22-year-old revealed: "My future seemed clear. But then, we clashed in the Champions League and it changed everything."
Courtois was allowed to play against his parent club in the Champions League semi-final, which Atletico went on to win.
The goalkeeper has just two years to run on his current Chelsea contract and could put the Blues under pressure if he allows it to run into it's final 12 months.
He has been linked with a move to both Barcelona and Chelsea this season as well as being linked with a permanent switch to Atletico with Diego Costa moving to Chelsea in exchange.
