Good News: Insider reveals Chelsea are close to announcing exciting double deal



Belgian shotstopper, Thibaut Courtois has calmed initial fears among Chelsea supporters after reassuring fans he is ready to sign a new deal and extend his contract with the Premier League champions according to reports.

The Belgian international has been heavily linked with a move to European champions, Real Madrid in the summer but reports suggests the Blues have already begun talks with the shotstopper whose contract expires at the end of next season.

It is believed the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper will be offered an improved contract and could be set to sign a new deal expected to be in the region of £200,000 per week.

He is currently on a £100,000 per week wages but the new deal represents an 100% pay rise of which the Blues hierarchy believe it should be enough to convince the Belgian to snub the Spanish giants.

However, the former Genk goalkeeper also suggested Real Madrid target Eden Hazard could also be set to follow in his footsteps by signing a new deal at the Bridge.

Thibaut Courtois as quoted on signing a new contract and teammate Eden Hazard, he said;

“It has just turned the new year, so we will wait a few weeks and then sit around the table. I’m happy at Chelsea and a deal is close.

Has it been a distraction? Not for me. I’m just calm and relaxed because I’m tied to Chelsea. Despite the rumours and everything, I am focused on Chelsea and I’m happy here. He also added,

“Do Eden and I encourage each other to sign? Yes. He will say ‘if you sign, I will sign’ and I say the same to him!

“I think we are both happy at Chelsea, we both have a good part to play. We have been champions twice in the four seasons I have been here and can have our peak years together at Chelsea.”

The Blues are currently third on the log and are 16 points behind runaway Premier League leaders, Manchester City but tying both Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard to a long-term contract will show the Blues are ready to compete with Europe elites by keeping their best players.
