Atletico Madrid president confirms Courtois will not play if they meet Chelsea

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has confirmed: "If we draw Chelsea, Courtois will not play," referring to the possibility of meeting the Blues in the Champions League semi-finals, who have loaned goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to the Spanish club this season.

Chelsea have inserted a clause in the loan contract forcing Atletico to pay them more money, up to £4m per match according to sources, if they wish to field Courtois against his parent club.

Speaking to Spanish radio Onda Cero, Cerezo confessed: "It is a figure that we cannot pay."
