Courtois - New Deal!
I don`t think anyone I sunder any illusions as to who Jose Mourinho believes is his first choice keeper!
After making three consecutive starts, I think it`s fair to say that Thibaut Courtois is Jose`s preferred choice with the 22 year-old Belgian stopper set to become a mainstay of the starting eleven.
To that effect it is being reported that Chelsea are determined to tie down the keeper to a new long term deal and reports suggest that the new contract would see Courtois` pay rise form the reported £30,000 a week he`s on now to something in the region of £90,000 a week.
The gist of the articles I`ve been looking through infer that Chelsea are determined to tie the goalkeeper down and that it is sincerely hoped the new deal will be signed and in place by the end of the month.
We`ll endeavour to keep you abreast of the situation.
