Chelsea goalkeeper and Russia 2018 Golden Glove winner Thibaut Courtois has given the indication that he’ll be expecting an improved contract offer from Chelsea if he is to commit his future to the club.
Courtois who finished with Belgium in third place in the Russia 2018 World Cup believes that his current status as a golden glove winner entitles him to a bigger contract offer from Chelsea.
Courtois said: “I will be coming back, for sure, and I will see what they want and how they say it.
“Obviously with this World Cup, I think what was on the table obviously is different than what I can have, maybe.
“In this World Cup, I have ignored all the speculation, all the rumours.
“But now in the next few days I will have a chat with my agent and see what Chelsea told him, and then we will talk. But I feel happy at Chelsea, it’s not that I necessarily want to leave.”
Courtois is in the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge and has been reportedly offered a £200,000 weekly wage to extend his contract. He added that he won’t be quick to move on this summer even if he does not put pen to paper on a new contract.
“People always complain that players don’t comply with their contracts, but maybe they do. I don’t think they will keep someone with my qualities on the bench, even if I don’t sign. But maybe (staying) is possible, because I like it in London.”
It will be left for Chelsea to decide as it will be beneficial for the club to sell him this summer if he fails to sign on with the club than lose him for free next summer.
