Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho confirms that Thibaut Courtois will return from Atletico Madrid next season [BBC]

So that’s the end of the imbroglio:

Thibaut Courtois will return to his parent club Chelsea next season, after 2 seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

BBC Sport report that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the Belgian will return to Stamford Bridge for 2014/15.

Though he signed in 2011, Courtois is yet to actually play for Chelsea, so this is a new situation for the Belgian, and one he’ll be relishing after proving himself so abundantly at Atletico.

It’s an interesting and unexpected confirmation from Mourinho – just a couple of days ago, Courtois was still expressing doubt about his future – did the Belgian have his final say here?

This raises the immediate question of what will happen with Petr Cech – will the Czech stalwart be relegated to Number 2, or will they both start out on an even keel in July?
