Chelsea FC Transfer News: Madrid Offers Sought-after Striker for On-Loan Goalkeeper
By Mark Wayne Eubank | February 14, 2014 8:25 PM EST
Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have held talks concerning the possibility of keeping on-loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at the Vicente Calderon, while sending striker Diego Costa the opposite way.
Jose Mourinho insists that Courtois will return to Stamford Bridge after his loan spell with Atletico Madrid
The Daily Star suggests that the La Liga outfit will also add £8million as part of the offer.
Meanwhile, an alternative option of the same nature is also laid, wherein Spanish starlet Koke plus a bigger amount of £16million is involved.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho has reiterated his stance in the past that the Belgian shot-stopper will not leave Stamford Bridge permanently any time soon, but Courtois does not want to head back to west London and serve as a back-up to Petr Cech nor does he want to renew his contract with Chelsea, unless he is assured that he will be handed the number 1 shirt.
Other clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona, who are looking for a personnel that can man the middle of the sticks on a long-term basis, are also interested in signing the 21-year-old.
