Mourinho: Courtois to Return to Chelsea

MOST COMMENTED

In an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca, Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho confirmed that Belgium international goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois would return to Stamford Bridge for preseason following his two-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid. The Portuguese also spoke of his eagerness to complete the signing of Diego Costa, while affirming that center midfielder Ramires is not for sale.

“When the World Cup in Brazil is over, Courtois will be coming straight back to Stamford Bridge – end of story,” Mourinho said. News of Courtois’ return to Chelsea casts doubt over the future of longtime No. 1 Petr Cech, who is still just 32.

During the interview, Mourinho also said he has “total confidence” in signing Atletico Madrid and Spain striker Diego Costa. “Costa is a player who I want to have in my team,” he said. “I’ve asked my club for him and I have total confidence that we’re going to achieve it and he will end up signing for Chelsea.”

The former Real Madrid coach also addressed the rumors floating around about the future of Brazil international Ramires, saying the 27-year-old is not for sale. “I have a great relationship with important people at Real Madrid and they know that Ramires is going to stay at Chelsea,” he said.
