Jose Mourinho insists that Courtois will return to Stamford Bridge after Atletico loan spell
The 21-year-old is spending the season temporarily at Atletico Madrid, who happens to own Diego Costa - the former's counterpart in the rumoured deal.
Courtois has earlier stated that he is not willing to return to Stamford Bridge as a reserve and should that be the case, he might as well seek game-time elsewhere.
However, Mourinho remains firm that the Belgian international will return to his mother club after the loan spell this coming summer.
"No," was Mourinho's answer when asked if Courtois will be staying at Atletico for good.
Meanwhile, the Portuguese just kept mum when he was prompted with questions involving Costa-Courtois deal.
"Courtois is our player, Diego is not our player, so I cannot speak about Diego Costa," he said.
"About Courtois, I can, because he is my player."
