"We have not made a decision on my future. We will wait until the end of the season," Courtois told reporters, "but I have spoken to Chelsea and they have allowed me to make a decision.
"Now I'm focused on Atletico and Belgium. My dream is to increase my level and play in the World Cup in 2014.
"The Premier League is different to Spain. I think Chelsea want me to adapt with a loan deal but I would prefer to play for Atletico in the Champions League rather than a team which fights for eighth place in the Premier League.
"I know Chelsea don't want to loan me to another big English team and I understand that but it is a difficult situation."
