Courtois Contract Talks Stall After European Interest

Thibaut Courtois was signed by André Villas-Boas as a future replacement for Petr Cech and the Belgian shot-stopper has really stepped into the role of Chelsea's number one goalkeeper during the past couple of seasons after spending the first three years of his Blues career on loan at Atletico Madrid.

'We have so many games at the moment, and I prefer to focus on the team's games, my own performances'.

"Regarding my contract, that's the thing where Chelsea must deal with my agent (Christophe Henrotay)".

The keeper has been linked with a move to Madrid - with Real or former club Atletico - and rumours have intensified after Courtois' ex-girlfriend returned to Spain with his two children. Talks, the Belgium global said, will not recommence until the end of the season.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea's Champions League encounter with Qarabag on Wednesday, he said: "The most important thing is to perform well for myself and the team".

Courtois is not rushing to resolve his future.

It is reported that Courtois will look to double his £200,000-a-week deal to put him on par with United's De Gea.

The Belgian goalkeeper has confirmed that there have been no new developments over his contract with Chelsea and he is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract next summer.

He has added to his silverware since returning to his parent club, landing the Premier League title in two of the last three campaigns, and the League Cup in 2015.

The Belgian, who is now out in Azerbaijan ahead of Chelsea's clash with Qarabag, has 18 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and now earns £200,000-a-week.
