Thibault Courtois faces wait to discover Chelsea future as Atletico Madrid prepare for Champions League final following La Liga triumph

Thibaut Courtois is yet to discover
what the future holds for him as he
waits to find out what plans
Chelsea have for him, but
confirmed he wants regular football
next season.
The Belgium goalkeeper is yet to
make a first team appearance for
the Blues, having been on loan at
Atletico Madrid for the last three
seasons, but there are ever-growing
calls for him to return to play at
Stamford Bridge next season.
Courtois has garnered a reputation
as one of the world's best keepers
during his time in Spain and
recently was part of the side which
won the Primera Division title in
dramatic fashion.
Courtois was for some time
considered to be well below Petr
Cech in the pecking order for first
team football at Chelsea, but he is
now considered by many to be
better than Chelsea No. 1, himself a
very fine goalkeeper.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho faces a
real dilemma in picking between a
loyal servant with arguably some of
his best years ahead of him and
potentially the club's next star
However Mourinh has said that he
has made his mind up about
Courtois and will announce the
decision soon, although the keeper
has said he currently has no idea
where he will be next season.
Talking to the Guardian he said:
"It's a great feeling to be champion
of Spain. I am not sure yet what
happens next season.
"We have the Champions League
final [on Saturday] and then the
World Cup, so now is not the time
to think of the future. I have two
years contract [left] with Chelsea,
so we will see.
"If I move somewhere, I will play.
With my age, what I want, the
most important thing for me, is to
"We will see what happens. But
Petr is one of the best goalkeepers
in the world, he won the golden
glove in the Premier League, and I
have a lot of respect for him, so we
will see what Chelsea decide and
what they plan to do. You guys will
see the decision [then].
