Courtois eyes new Chelsea deal

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to sign a contract extension to keep him at Stamford Bridge for some time to come, reports Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old has reportedly been offered a new five-year deal, and is likely to sign as soon as he returns from international duty.


“It’s not yet signed. I am here with the national team so it is difficult, but when I am back at Chelsea I will probably sign the new contract,” Courtois confirmed.


Courtois, who still has two years to run on his current deal, initially joined the Blues from Racing Genk in the summer of 2011, but was immediately loaned to Atletico Madrid.


He eventually spent three seasons at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, making 154 appearances in all competitions and helping Los Rojiblancos to secure the Copa Del Rey, Europa League and La Liga titles. He established himself as Belgium’s no.1 and garnered a reputation as one of the best young goalkeepers in the game.


On returning to Stamford Bridge this summer he immediately earned the honour of being Jose Mourinho’s first choices in the Chelsea goal, ousting club legend Petr Cech in the process.


“We don’t talk about the situation,” Courtois said of his battle with Cech. “But of course I know he has played 10 years at Chelsea and that now I am playing and for him it’s not the nicest situation. But that is the decision of the board and the trainer. He is working hard in training to be ready when I cannot play or I am maybe not playing well. We work well together.


“Of course as a professional and a winner you always want to play every game, so we will see what the decision is of the coach. But of course I am a professional player and I want to play every game that is possible.”


Courtois kept a clean sheet as Belgium defeated Australia 2-0 in a friendly in Liege this week.
