New contract talks between Chelsea and Thibaut Courtois are now reportedly on hold as the Belgian Goalkeeper has demanded that the club look to double his wages.

Is it me or is there always some sort of drama with Courtois? Ever since he came back to Chelsea there has always been reports of unrest or some misquoted interview that has caused issues between the club and player to the point that he has had to come out and speak publicly.

Courtois is on a contract to 2019 earning a reported £90,000 per week and has told Chelsea that in order to commit to the club for longer he would be looking to earn a similar amount that Eden Hazard earns which is around £200,000 which remains a staggering amount of money.

There is an argument that although the likes of Eden Hazard is an impact player and receives far more attention, Courtois plays just an important role to ensure that we remain solid at the back. After a really disappointing season two years ago during the nightmare year we had, Courtois demonstrated a return to form and made some outstanding saves once again to cement his position as one of the top Goalkeepers in the Premier League and in Europe.

There of course is also the reported interest from Real Madrid as they still regard Courtois as a potential signing as backup to their number one target David De Gea. The situation is still not clear as whether or not the Spanish side will make a move for a new Goalkeeper this summer but if they did you would have to believe that De Gea is the man they would move for.

Under Antonio Conte, Chelsea have taken a major step forward and have built themselves a solid foundation now to build on as they look to take on the Champions League and Premier League this coming season. It's players such as Thibaut Courtois that form an important spine that can take us forward for years and Chelsea have to ensure that they get a new deal signed as quickly as possible.

Give him the deal he wants!
