Chelsea and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku believes that it is time for teammate Thibaut Courtois to play in England.

Romelu Lukaku has said that it is time for Belgium and Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois to play in England.

Manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the goalkeeper will return to Stamford Bridge for pre-season training after the World Cup, having spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

The striker, who has also been loaned out for the last two seasons, told Sporza: "I think it's time. He's played at a very high level in Spain for three years. It's time to see him in England."

Courtois has said that he would want to be the team's first-choice keeper if he remains with the team for the 2014-15 season.
