Chelsea have opened contract talks with Thibaut Courtois, according to Sky Sports.
Courtois has been in stellar form this campaign, and leads the race to win the Premier League Golden Glove. Chelsea appear to be set to reward the Belgian for his good performances.
Sky Sports believe that Courtois has just two years remaining on his current deal, which has alerted La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid. Interest from Los Blancos has forced Chelsea into action.
According to Sky Sports, negotiations to extend Courtois’ contract are now underway, which is excellent news from a Chelsea perspective.
Courtois has won two Premier League titles in three seasons in a Chelsea shirt and his performances between the sticks have been influential in our success. If he is willing to commit his future to Chelsea, then we will have a world-class goalkeeper for as long as a decade. We will have to wait and see if these negotiations will prove to be successful.
