SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: ATLETICO DE MADRID | COURTOIS & PLAN B

ATLETICO DE MADRID | COURTOIS & PLAN B

Young Belgium goalkeeper Courtois has already won a place in the hearts of many Atletico de Madrid followers. The player is considered by everyone as a vital piece of the team & one cannot contemplate the future of Atletico without the goalkeeper. But the future of Courtois belongs to Chelsea FC the team that has his contract & has allowed to be on loan with the Spanish Football Club. 

Courtois has evolved at Atletico as one of the finest young talents of European Football & Chelsea FC naturally see & feel that it may be time to get back "home" to London to naturally take over from their current veteran goalie Petr Cech.

ATLETICO DE MADRID

Atletico de Madrid are attempting to convince Chelsea FC in accepting a transfer & the player is expressing his true desires of staying at the Club & in the city of Madrid were he has settled in magnificently. But Chelsea does wish to sell & this forces Atletico to create a "Plan B".

AC Milan keeper Cristian Abbiati has been approached. He is an "old" Atletico as he spent season 2007-2008 at the Spanish Club on loan. The player is familiar with Atletico & the "transition" would be smooth. Another name is Osasuna keeper Andres Fernandez but this player is desired by many ( FC Barcelona for example ) & Osasuna will ask for big money in order to consider letting go their goalkeeper. 


The ideal would be to keep Courtois but the need to have in place an alternative plan is the more likely scenario & Atletico is working on it.
