Belgian star says that his future at Stamford Bridge is far from resolved.
Chelsea’s 22-year old goalkeeping prodigy Thibaut Courtois is adamant that he does not want to be warming the benches at Stamford Bridge next season, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Belgian international star was a key figure in Atletico Madrid winning La Liga and making the final of the Champions League last season, and feels that his performances on loan in Spain deserve no less than the No.1 spot.
Courtois’ stance leaves the Blues in a fix as they do not want to leave their long term goalkeeping ace Petr Cech high and dry next season, and are trying their best to accommodate both goalies in their squad.
Courtois has also insisted that his future is still very much a mystery and that he would know more only after the World Cup.
Speaking about his ambitions, the former Genk starlet said, “When will I know about my future? It will be after the World Cup I think, then everything will be clear.
“Do I want to number one wherever I play next season? Yes, I think with my age and the performances I had I want to play. To be on the bench is not the nicest thing.”
The Belgian international’s stubborn ambition could well turn out to be a thorn in the flesh of 32-year old Cech, who might be sacrificed by the Blues in order to accommodate one of their biggest future stars.
