Courtois Chelsea bombshell: I plan Spain return

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois admits returning to Spain is on the agenda.

Courtois says he will consider returning to Spain when his current contract with Chelsea runs out in 2018.

He told Marca: "I have a contract with Chelsea for three more seasons. In 2018 when I am in the last year of my contract we will have to evaluate if it is best for me to renew or leave.

"When I left Spain I already knew that one day I was going to go back."

Asked if he missed Atletico he said: "Yes, but not just for the club, for Madrid itself and for the whole country. From the first minute there I feel in love with Spain, with the people and the way of life. I still eat late, take a siesta and watch Spanish television. I feel half Spanish."
