Chelsea could be set for an exhaustive few months of negotiations after it was revealed that Thibaut Courtois is still yet to sign a new contract with the club.
The 25-year-old had entered discussions with Blues representatives in May of this year regarding a new deal. However, an agreement was never reached and talks we put on hold.
Now, with just 18 months to go before his contract expires, the ‘keeper has revealed that there has still be no resolution to negotiations.
Speaking to the media prior to Chelsea’s important Champions League match against Qarabag, the Belgian, who is valued at £36million by Transfermarkt stated;
“Regarding my contract, that’s the thing where Chelsea must deal with my agent. I don’t think there have been any new developments,”
This revelation has created much speculative discussion amongst Chelsea fans. And while some of the Stamford Bridge faithful are desperate to see their stopper stay at the club, a surprising number of supporters do not believe Courtois is worthy of a brand-new deal…
