Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has shot down rumours that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, currently on loan at Atletico Madrid, could be sold to Atleti or Real Madrid, stating that the young Belgian won’t likely be sold nor loaned out.


In Friday’s press conference, Mourinho spoke candidly about Courtois’ situation and stressed that he doesn’t need to start Courtois over Cech because he has two years on his contract, regardless of if he is a starter or not.

“I believe [he’ll be here next season], I don’t think he will be loaned out. We don’t struggle to keep him because he has two more years on his contract. I don’t need to give any assurances to any player.

“A player that has a contract with Chelsea has a contract with Chelsea. Chelsea has Petr Cech, Courtois and Schwarzer. We are in a good condition.”

Mourinho then cautioned anyone who wished to make a bid for Courtois.

“When you want a player and the player has two more years of contract, it is easy to say that we have no problems.

“If somebody wants him, we have to know. It is easy for us.”
