The uneasiness over contract persists as Belgian reveals he will decide on future after the world cup.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has said that he will decide on his future after the football world cup. The Belgian’s contract with Chelsea ends at the end of the season.
Courtois has been linked with Real Madrid for quite some time. With David de Gea unlikely to leave Manchester United, Courtois has become the top-transfer target for Real Madrid.
After winning the FA Cup against United last Saturday, Courtois talked about his future with the club. “We will see what is going to happen after the world cup,” Courtois said, as reported by Sky Sports.
The Belgian stressed that he is not sure if he will be a Chelsea player next season. “I think we’ll see after the world cup whether I’m a Chelsea player for next year,” said Courtois.
Chelsea have failed to qualify for the Champions League this season. The Blues boss, Antonio Conte is speculated to face the sack at the end of the season. Courtois has insisted that the club needs to invest more if they intend to fight for the title next season.
“Yes, I think so. I think especially if you see how clubs like City and United are spending and working,” said the goalkeeper.
“I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same. Obviously within the limits of what’s possible as well,” added Courtois.
The Belgian played a key role in Chelsea’s FA Cup victory over United in the final. Chelsea beat the Red Devils 1-0, the only goal coming from Eden Hazard.
Since joining Chelsea in 2011, Courtois has made 154 appearances for the club, winning two Premier League titles. He won the Premier League Golden Glove in the 2016-17 season.
