The highly rated Belgium international is currently spending a season-long loan spell with La Liga high-flyers Atletico de Madrid, the third campaign in a row that he has been  shipped out to the Vicente Calderon.

However, despite having a contract with the west London club that runs until the summer of 2016, the shot stopper has still been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, a rumour that the 21-year-old has strongly denied:  “I’ve said it in three or four languages. Everyone knows these things have been said to destabilise the team.

“I have a deal with Atletico until June 30 and then two more years with Chelsea.

“I want to stay with them. It’s okay if people follow my career, but I don’t think they’ll want to sell me.

“The press have put this about to destabilise us.

“These kind of things often come out when there is an important game. We know it’s not true.

“Whatever came out in the press was not true and we are focused on the present. Today (Tuesday) was an example.”
