Chelsea keeper Courtois: I know Atletico Madrid willing to spend big on me

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is well aware that Atletico Madrid want to sign him permanently.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone has talked this week about committing over €20 million to the Belgian's signing.

"I know this, but it depends on Chelsea and what they ask," Courtois told La Sexta.

"First, my agent is talking to Chelsea, to ask if I could talk to other clubs. Then we'll know a bit more. Atletico will wait for what Chelsea has to say.

"First, we want to hear from Chelsea what they are going to do and then we'll see. But still, I focus exclusively on Atletico and Chelsea."
