Atletico Madrid keeper Courtois: I have no Chelsea connection

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has cast fresh doubt over a return to parent club Chelsea.

Courtois will take part in the Champions League final tonight against Real Madrid.

"At Chelsea I have no emotional connection" Courtois said.

"They signed me up in 2011, nine million euros (£7.25million). Since then I've gone to London only for the medical check.

"Already last year Chelsea no longer wanted to loan. But I wanted to stay in Madrid. After this season, it all goes back over again, and it is probably even more difficult to make a decision."
