Courtois: I won't be swapped for Falcao

Thibaut Courtois is convinced he will not be used as a bargaining chip by Chelsea in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao.

Chelsea signed the Belgian in 2011 but he has not yet featured for the club and is in his second year on loan at Atletico Madrid.

The Blues are long-term admirers of Falcao and may well go back in for him in the summer, but Courtois says he has been told he has a future at Chelsea and feels he will battle for the keeper's jersey with Petr Cech in a couple of years.

"A lot of things the press say are nonsense," Courtois told the Evening Standard when quizzed about the possibility of a swap deal involving himself and Falcao.

"They are guessing. They know Chelsea want Falcao but Chelsea have told me, 'The last thing we want to do is sell you'. Maybe they are lying to me but I don't think so.

"They will continue with Cech for two more years, I believe. The problem is I think that Chelsea didn't expect me to be at this level this soon. I've developed really quickly. It's a very good situation for Chelsea."
