Yeah that was a weird one. Seemed like they were just wanting him in case he turns out to be great.
That Chelsea tried tom buy Butland though, indicates that maybe they don't think Courtois is for them. Which is odd given how much they paid, and that he's (apparently) been quite decent for Athletico.
He's never been the same since the skull fracture (not that you can blame him). He's obviously not shite, but it's just as well Chelsea have Courtois coming to be honest.
I'd probably put Cech second behind Lloris on my list, but it's by some way.
