Chelsea Eye Thibaut Courtois Talks Amid Fresh Rumours

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has said that it is not his place to convince Thibaut Courtois to sign a new contract at the club.

Chelsea meanwhile will find themselves in need of a keeper if Courtois does indeed depart, and that eventuality is becoming increasingly likely as both PSG and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the Belgian.

The Belgium worldwide has been keen on signing new terms at Stamford Bridge, with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season.

It was in the Spanish capital that all of Europe began to take notice of his huge potential, as Courtois solidifed himself as the club's first-choice shotstopper despite his tender years, before going on to make 111 La Liga appearances during his three-year stint with Los Colchoneros.

Chelsea's man between the posts Thibaut Courtois has hailed Eden Hazard as arguably the best player in the Premier League, chelseafc.com reports.

Aid shipments were awaiting delivery for several days in advance, after Saudi leaders agreed on Wednesday to lift the blockade. The three-year civil war continues to rage in Yemen, where 10,000 have died and around 3 million people have been displaced.

Conte has now made it clear that he wants to put an end to the uncertainty surrounding his first-choice keeper's future, telling reporters: "I can say Courtois is one of the best, maybe the best goalkeeper in the world. But for sure the renewal is a task for the club". I don't think there have been any new developments.

Conte remains relatively relaxed regarding Courtois' future and cited Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil winding down their deals across town at Arsenal as an example of an increasing trend that major clubs have to deal with. I consider him one of the best.

"As you know very well, if a big player decides to not sign a new contract it is hard for the club to face this issue", he said. He knows very well what are my thoughts [are] about him.

"But at the same time, there is space to deal with this type of situation and to try to solve the situation".
