Mourinho: Courtois will return to Chelsea next season

Thibaut Courtois

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Thibaut Courtois, considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world, will return to parent club Chelsea next season, according to BBC Sport.

Courtois has impressed over the last few seasons whilst playing for Atletico Madrid. Atletico reached the Champions League final and won La Liga last season with Courtois in net, and many have called for his inclusion at Chelsea next season, in spite of the generally good form of current first choice Petr Cech.

Mourinho has finally confirmed that Courtois will return, something that should be seen as a positive by most Chelsea fans. There is little that he still has to work on, a commanding figure both between the sticks and in the penalty area, possibly in a manner that Cech has not been since his infamous cranial injury.

Chelsea will be looking to improve on their performance last year, which saw them finish the season trophy-less and in third place.
