Petr Cech future with Chelsea in doubt as Courtois set to secure top spot


Cech’s future at Chelsea could be cast into further doubt with rival keeper Thibaut Courtois set to be handed a new five-year deal.

Courtois made his competitive debut for Jose Mourinho’s side in yesterday’s impressive 3-1 win over Burnley, with the Belgian being given the nod over the Chelsea veteran.

And now his part in the Blues’ future is set to be cemented with a new five-year deal, which will see his weekly wage triple to £90,000, according to Goal.com.

Courtois has two years remaining on his current contract, which he signed when joining Chelsea in 2011.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are keeping close tabs on the situation, with the French duo both keen to make a move for Cech.

Mourinho believes the 32-year-old will stay and fight Courtois for his place between the sticks, but Chelsea are also unlikely to stand in the Czech’s way should he wish to secure guaranteed first-team football elsewhere before the end of the transfer window.
