Hazard : “Chelsea can go far in the champions League”
Goal can confirm that Thibaut Courtois has refused a first offer of extension on the part of its leaders. Currently paid at£ 100,000 a week, the doorman belgian hopes to double his salary to get to 200 000 pounds per week. The discussions, however, should resume soon. In the viewfinder, among others, Real Madrid, the Belgian will certainly not be on the transfer market this summer. The case of the prodigious Gianluigi Donnarumma to AC Milan, where the young Italian has refused to extend his contract, however, remains a warning to the leaders of the Blues.
Courtois will have to receive guarantees in order to sign his new contract. Its management remains optimistic and expects a favorable outcome. “I am very happy and there is no doubt that I will stay, “said the Belgian, a few days ago. “My contract ends in two years and it is obvious that I need a new agreement. It is important to finish the season with the national team and it may be that Chelsea will speak with my agent.“
