The agent of Thibaut Courtois has rebuffed speculation suggesting that the Belgium international has held talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a proposed summer move. A recent report from RTBF suggested that Courtois had spoken to Les Parisiens’ officials in London earlier in the week, and he could potentially push for a Blues exit at the end of the season.
However, any fears have been diminished by his representative Christophe Henrotay, who has stressed that any interest will have go through the Chelsea board first, he said: “I have never heard of that meeting. If any club is interested they know what they have to do – find a deal with Chelsea and then talk to me to check my client interest.RTBF is a small TV channel in Belgium and sometimes they like a little thrill to keep them alive. But their information is not correct.”
This is not the first time that the 25-year-old has been linked with a probable exit. The Belgian has been associated with a switch to European champions Real Madrid in the summer, and this speculation has not ceased over the past couple of months with Courtois himself admitting that he would consider a return to the Spanish capital in the future.
Courtois spent three seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid before he became a regular at Chelsea, and during this period, his two children were born, who continue to reside in the city with the Belgian’s mother. According to latest reports, Courtois is likely to be offered a fresh deal beyond June 2019 later this month, but the Belgian’s decision could hugely depend on whether the Blues have a realistic chance of claiming silverware this term. Chelsea face Barcelona and Leicester City in the Champions League and FA Cup respectively this month.
