It has been an impressive return to Chelsea for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and as a reward for his fine form the club are going to offer him a new long-term contract, according to the Metro.
Courtois currently has two years left on his current deal which sees him earn around £30,000-a-week, but the Blues are prepared to treble that in order to ward off any interest in the 22-year-old.
Cesar Azpilicueta signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday and it’s likely that the offer being put to the Belgium international will be of a similar length.
Courtois returned to West London this summer after three successful years on-loan with Atletico Madrid, during which time he won La Liga, the Europa League and Copa del Rey, as well as reaching the final of Champions League last season.
This convinced manager Jose Mourinho that he should be given a chance in his first team, even though stalwart Petr Cech was already at the club.
Cech has been the side’s No.1 for over a decade, but has had to step aside since Courtois has come back and the Belgian’s fine displays mean it could be some time before the Czech Republic international gets a place between the sticks again.
