Key Chelsea star delivers latest update on his future at the club
Thibaut Courtois admits that there are no new developments regarding him signing a new contract at Chelsea
Thibaut Courtois has revealed that there are “no developments” about his future at Chelsea as the speculation about his situation continues.
The Belgian shot-stopper has developed into one of the Premier League’s finest goalkeepers during his time at Stamford Bridge and is widely regarded as one of the top shot-stoppers in world football.
The goalkeeper’s current contract is set to expire at the end of next season and Chelsea are thought to be keen to tie Courtois down to a new long-term deal at Stamford Bridge.
However, the Blues are yet to make proper progress in contract negotiations as they look to get the 25-year-old to sign a new contract at the west London club.
And speaking at a news conference before Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Qarabag on Wednesday night, Courtois admitted that there had been no developments about his future.
Courtois said: “Regarding my contract, that’s the thing where Chelsea must deal with my agent (Christophe Henrotay). I don’t think there have been any new developments.
“We have so many games at the moment, and I prefer to focus on the team’s games, my own performances, and there will be time enough towards the end of the season to have talks.”
Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday evening with a crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield.
The Blues have been in better form in the top flight of later, with Antonio Conte’s men having thrashed West Brom 4-0 last weekend after having beaten Manchester United before the international break.
However, Chelsea are still third in the table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City.
