Thibaut Courtois is coming off an incredible season on loan with Atletico Madrid, and Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho is adamant that the 22-year-old Belgian goalkeeper will return to Stamford Bridge

Whoever is in charge of the club website appears to have missed that memo. The first-team page lists new signing Cesc Fabregas and last season's loanees like Romelu Lukaku and Victor Moses, but Courtois is nowhere to be found.

Coincidence? Possibly, but his absence is more than a little curious. It seems very likely that the situation isn't as black and white as Mourinho would have people believe.
