Chelsea fans here in the Tavern will be hoping that their side can challenge for the title next season, as they failed to even secure Champions League football this campaign.
The Blues pulled off a shock result yesterday as they managed to beat Manchester United to lift the FA Cup at Wembley. Although, it appears as if one of Chelsea’s star players believes that improvements are needed before the start of next season, as according to Sky Sports, Thibaut Courtois believes that Chelsea need to add players in order to challenge for the title, and highlighted Manchester United and Manchester City’s transfer window business.
The Belgian’s future remains uncertain as he says he does not know where he will spend the 2018/19 campaign, with his contract soon running out.
Indeed, the goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and refused to commit himself to Chelsea in the wake of yesterday’s victory.
“We’ll see what is going to happen after the World Cup,” said Courtois.
“Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we’ll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year.”
Although, when asked if Chelsea need to add players in order to challenge for the Premier League title next season, he said this:
“Yes, I think so.
“I think especially if you see how City and United are spending and working.”
Thibaut Courtois has established himself as one of the world’s best goalkeepers in recent years, so the Blues will be desperate to keep him at the club this summer. Although, the Belgian does believe that the club need to bring in a number of players to challenge for the title next season, just like Manchester City and Manchester United have done, which is rather interesting as it’s clear to see that the shot-stopper wants to see the Blues match their rivals for ambition.
