Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois plans to inform Chelsea he wants to be sold.

Sport says Courtois, now in his third season on-loan with Atletico, has no intention of ever returning to Chelsea to play second fiddle to Petr Cech.

Instead, the Belgian intends to encourage a bid from Barca, where president Sandro Rosell has already confirmed their interest.

Barca are in the market for a replacement for want-away Victor Valdes and are ready to open talks with Chelsea about a fee for Courtois before the end of this season.
