Courtois won’t play against Chelsea, Atletico say

The President of Atletico Madrid has confirmed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won’t play against Chelsea if the teams are drawn against each other in the Champions League semi-finals, ESPN has reported.


Thibaut Courtois


Courtois is on loan at Atletico from the Blues and a clause in the loan arrangement stipulates Atletico would have to pay almost £5m for Courtois to feature in a two-legged semi-final, Enrique Cerezo told Spanish radio station Onda Cero. The fee equates to €3m per game.


Atletico beat Barcelona on Wednesday night to reach their first European Cup semi-final since 1974 while 2012 winners Chelsea knocked out Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday. They are joined in Friday’s draw by holders Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.


Courtois signed for Chelsea from Genk in 2011 but has never played for the London club. He was immediately loaned to Atletico and the move has been renewed each summer. But it is not yet clear if Courtois will remain at Vicente Calderon for next season, return to Chelsea or move on to a third party.


The Belgium international has said he wouldn’t be willing to be second choice at Stamford Bridge despite manager Jose Mourinho publically praising the 21-year-old.
