Man City are reportedly interested in Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois though it appears the Belgian may be set for another season on loan at Atletico Madrid according to Football Direct News.

The 21 year old custodian is into his third season at the Vicente Calderon and is yet to represent Chelsea in a single senior fixture and with Jose Mourinho seemingly happy to retain the services of Petr Cech as his number one it would appear Courtois isn’t likely to return to Stamford Bridge any time soon.

This source claims that Courtois’s ‘understanding’ with national team colleague Vincent Kompany has led Man City to consider a move for the youngster

A move for Courtois would be a little surprising given the fine form displayed by England man Joe Hart in recent months, the 26 year old keeping five clean sheets in his past six Premier League starts.
