Chelsea set for crunch talks with unsettled star

Chelsea are set for discussions with Thibaut Courtois about his future at the club, according to the goalkeeper’s father.

The Belgian stopped signed for the Blues in 2011, but is yet to make a competitive appearance for them after being loaned out to Atletico Madrid upon penning a contract at Stamford Bridge.

His performances for the high-flying La Liga side have seen him emerge as one of European football’s top glovesmen, but his future with the West London outfit is far from clear.

The Blues are believed to be desperate to keep their 21-year-old ace, but the player himself is seeking assurances about his chances of regular playing time if he does return, due to the presence of Petr Cech.

With Atletico said to be keen to make his stay a permanent one and Barcelona also thought to be interested, Courtois knows he has options.

His father, Thierry, says that his son is focused on the rest of the season at the Vicente Calderon, but that talks with Chelsea could happen soon:

“Thibaut still has a contract until the end of the season at Atletico.” He is quoted by The Metro.

“It is logical that there are talks with Chelsea about his future at this point. And that’s what we are doing.”
