The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to hang on to Thibaut Courtois this summer…
The Belgian has proven himself a vital member of the Blues’ first team, and it would appear as though Conte and co have realised just how important it is that he remains a part of proceedings at Stamford Bridge going forward.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues are looking to secure a new deal for the Belgian – with Courtois likely to receive a bumper pay rise on his already existing £120,000-per-week deal.
This is big news for the Chelsea fans in the pub, with Courtois’ role within Conte’s Chelsea clear for all to see. A vital last line of defence beyond a stellar back line, the Blues’ defensive turnaround this season is due, in large part, to the fine form of the Belgian.
Excellent with the ball at his feet, strong in the air and an outstanding shot stopper – he really is the complete package.
The Chelsea defence, anchored by Courtois, is arguably the most impressive in the Premier League – and with the Blues likely to go into next season as Premier League holders – the Belgian will be vital.
