Thibaut Courtois has told Chelsea he wants regular football next season.
Courtois has yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea since signing from Genk in 2011 and has spent the past three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.
The Belgium international helped Atletico to win La Liga on Saturday following a 1-1 draw at Barcelona and he is now preparing for the coming weekend’s UEFA Champions League final against city rivals Real.
And the young keeper outlined his intention to be playing week in, week out.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I am not sure yet what happens next season.
“It is a great feeling to be champions of Spain. We have the Champions League final next week and then the World Cup. Now is not the time to think about my future.
“If I move somewhere, I will play. At my age, the most important thing for me, and what I want to do, is to play.
“Petr is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he won the Golden Glove in the Premier League this season. I have a lot of respect for him.
“I have two years [left on my] contract with Chelsea, so we will see what they decide.”
