Chelsea keeper Courtois: I'm doing preseason with Atlético Madrid

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has announced he’s returning to Atlético Madrid for a second season on-loan.

Petr Cech’s successor?

Indeed, Courtois says he will begin his preseason in Madrid.

It is pretty certain that I’ll stay another year at Atletico,” said Courtois. “On July 4 I’ll resume training in Madrid.

Well Courtois staying at Athletico Madrid is the best option at the moment for Chelsea and Courtois himself. Courtois impressed during his first season on loan at Atlético Madrid wining the Europa League and he showed ample amount of impressive saves and reflexes.

Petr Cech recently said in an interview that he is not going anywhere and complements Courtois as one of the best young keepers in the beautiful game. This is what he told The Fulham Chronicle,

I think if you look around Europe and you look at the goalkeepers with top quality that you would expect for a Premier League team, then there are not many as talented as Thibaut is.
This is one of the reasons why Chelsea bought him and got him under contract because he is one of the best talents in European football. He is only 19 and he’s been playing in his home country as a number one choice goalkeeper.
He managed to win the title which gave him a lot of experience and now he’s done really well at Atlético. He has a chance to become the Belgian national team goalkeeper so it’s great improvement.

Well, Petr Cech has also been also magnificent for Chelsea not only this season but ever since Roman took over and Cech will definatly stay at Chelsea for many years to come and the best option for Courtois is to stay and win silverware for the time being at Atlético Madrid.
