Thibaut Courtois recently suggested that The Blues would likely have to improve their wage offer if they want him to stay as his performances in the 2018 World Cup have increased his value.
“I will go back and I will see what they want and how they say it,” he said after the tournament ended. “Obviously, with this World Cup, I think what was on the table is different than what I can have.
“In this World Cup, I have ignored all the speculation, all the rumours. But now, in the next few days, I will have a chat with my agent and see what Chelsea told him, and then we will talk. But I feel happy at Chelsea, it’s not that I necessarily want to leave.”
