Report: Thibaut Courtois to sign new Chelsea deal

A report claims that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will sign a new five-year contract with the club this month.

Thibaut Courtois will reportedly sign a new five-year contract with Chelsea this month.

The Belgian international returned to his parent club this summer following a three-year loan spell with Atletico Madrid, where he emerged into one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.

The 22-year-old still has two years remaining on his current deal, which he signed when he made the move from Genk in 2011.

However, according to Goal.com, the new contract, which will run for five years, will see Courtois's wages tripled to around £90,000 a week.

Courtois was given the nod ahead of Petr Cech in Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday evening.
