Thibaut Courtois updates on his future plans
Belgium international Thibaut Courtois is keen to resolve his Chelsea future before travelling to Russia for this summer's World Cup.
The 25-year-old is approaching the final year of his contract with the Blues, but talks over a probable extension are yet to progress.
As a result, the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been associated with his services, though the Belgian is adamant that he will stay put at Chelsea next term.
Speaking to Sporza, Courtois is keen to have a clear idea on his situation prior to the World Cup, but he is confident that he will remain at Stamford Bridge for at least a year.
"If I go to the World Cup with a clear idea, sign or wait another year, then I have a clear head at the tournament," he said. "I am still proud to play at Chelsea and I want to achieve success.
"I have one year [left on my] contract and feel good at Chelsea, at the end of the season we will sit down together and set out a vision. I know that I will be at Chelsea next year as well."
Courtois was initially picked by Roberto Martinez for Belgium's friendly against Saudi Arabia, but a hamstring issue has forced him to return to west London.
Chelsea have a key Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur next weekend, and it will be interesting to see whether the Belgian can recover in time for the London derby.
