Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo said that Courtois would not face Chelsea if drawn against one another in the Champions League due to a clause in the loan agreement that would require a payment, reports the Daily Mail.

A clause in the loan agreement is believed to require Madrid to pay up to 3 million per game for the influential goalkeeper to face Chelsea. Additionally, Madrid appear interested in extending the loan agreement for the player into next season.
