Thibaut Courtois does not believe Chelsea will attempt to swap him for Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao, ESPN has reported, with the goalkeeper - who has spent the last two years on loan in Spain - revealing the Premier League club have told him they are not interested in the rumoured transfer.

Courtois joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011 and was immediately loaned to Atletico, who were in need of a replacement for David De Gea after the Spaniard joined Manchester United.

The Belgium international acknowledged that Chelsea are keen to sign the prolific Falcao but told the Evening Standard that there is no truth in speculation that the Blues will offer Courtois plus cash for the Columbian forward.

A lot of things the press say are nonsense. They are guessing,” Courtois said. “They know Chelsea want Falcao but Chelsea have told me: ‘The last thing we want to do is sell you.’ Maybe they are lying to me but I don’t think so.

Indeed, Courtois insisted that his future at Stamford Bridge is mapped out, although his improvement as a goalkeeper is said to have taken his employers by surprise.

They will continue with Petr Cech for two more years, I believe,” Courtois said. “The problem is I think that Chelsea didn’t expect me to be at this level this soon. I’ve developed really quickly. It’s a very good situation for Chelsea.
