Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has told Thibaut Courtois he wants him at Stamford Bridge next season.

The Daily Mail says Mourinho has now contacted the highly-rated keeper to discuss his intentions for next season.

After three successive seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, Mourinho wants Courtois to return to the club next season to form part of his first-team plans.

Petr Cech has long been established as the Stamford Bridge club's first-choice goalkeeper, but the emergence of Courtois has placed question marks over his position.
