Courtois Chelsea future to be decided in coming months

The Chelsea future of Thibaut Courtois is clouded.

The London Evening Standard says Jose Mourinho, who returned to Chelsea as manager in the summer, is a huge admirer of both Courtois and Petr Cech, having worked with the latter in his first spell between 2004-7 and seen Courtois in action with Atletico Madrid while in charge of rivals Real Madrid.

A decision on Courtois's future will have to be made in the new year, especially if the Belgian doesn't feel like he has a chance of first team football at Stamford Bridge.

He is unlikely to sign a contract extension in that situation and Chelsea will be in danger of seeing the potential of receiving a large transfer fee diminish.
