The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Thibaut Courtois this season…
Antonio Conte clearly has enjoyed the form of the Belgian too, with the Telegraph reporting that the Blues have moved to secure his future. According to the Telegraph, Chelsea have begun discussions with Courtois’ representatives over a new deal, with the Blues seemingly keen to tie him down long-term.
Certainly, Courtois has impressed this season, forming an excellent partnership with the likes of David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta ahead of him. Though the Blues struggled earlier in the season, they have bounced back remarkably, leaving the fans in the pub delighted.
For his part, Courtois has really come of age this year, performing excellently as the last line of Chelsea’s defence. Though games can often pass by without him really needing to do much, the Belgian is always alert and ready to make a save – and that is what makes him so good.
The 25-year-old has made 35 league appearances this season.
