Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois poised to pen new five-year £60k-per-week deal

Courtois’ long-term commitment to Chelsea could pave the way for veteran keeper Cech to leave the club.

The Czech Republic international spent 10 seasons as the club’s first-choice, helping Chelsea win three Premier League trophies, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and Champions League.

But, he is likely to grow restless at sitting on the bench, and could force through a move in the January transfer window.

Real Madrid, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain have all been linked with approaches for the 32-year-old, who is thought to be available for a fee in the region of £18m.
