Sky Sports expert Guillem Balague claimed earlier this month that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was considering his options amid interest from Real Madrid. Blues winger Eden Hazard was also thought to be one of Los Blancos’ top transfer targets.
This, predictably, caused much unrest among the Chelsea faithful. Courtois and Hazard are two of our most important players and are both enjoying excellent campaigns. The prospect of losing either, let alone both, is frightening.
Fear no more, Chelsea fans, The Sun believe that Courtois is closing in on signing a contract extension with the Premier League champions, which will make him the highest paid Chelsea player of all-time.
The Sun believe that Courtois’ new deal will see him become the first ever Chelsea player to earn more than £200K-a-week. The financial intricacies are essentially irrelevant nowadays, let’s get his contract signed and we can all sleep easy at night.
