The Chelsea FC goalkeeper has put talks on the Blues with hold until after the World Cup, according to a report in England
Thibaut Courtois won’t enter into negotiations with Chelsea FC over a new deal until after the World Cup, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues goalkeeper has put the talks on hold despite having little over 12 months left on his current deal.
The same article states that Courtois wants parity with Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea, who currently earns £200,000 a week at Old Trafford.
According to the same story, the Chelsea FC goalkeeper is open to a move to the Spanish capital after Courtois spent three seasons at Atletico Madrid.
The Blues shot stopper has also been linked with a potential move to Real Madrid this summer, although los Blancos could stick with Keylor Navas.
Courtois played an important role in Chelsea FC’s 1-0 win against Manchester United at Wembley in the FA Cup final last weekend.
Belgium international Eden Hazard scored a first-half winner in Chelsea FC’s FA Cup triumph to ensure the Blues ended the season with some silverware.
The west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a place in the Champions League next season.
The Blues haven’t won the Champions League since 2012.
