According to reports in The Evening Standard, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wants to sit down with club bosses after the World Cup to find out where his future lies.

Currently on international duty with Belgium, the Stamford Bridge number one is worried about media reports he's on the way out. Courtois has 12 months left on his contract at Chelsea, and he's baffled by the rampant transfer speculation linking him away from the side.

Chelsea have been linked with moves for Roma keeper Alisson Becker and Stoke City goalie Jack Butland (himself on World Cup duty with England).


That's worrying Courtois, and he's reportedly eager to find out where he stands. It cannot be escaping his attention that manager Antonio Conte's own future is also up in the air.

The 26-year old keeper has been a transfer target for Real Madrid for a few years now, but the Spanish giants were unwilling to match Chelsea's £73 million valuation in 2015. Since then, they've cooled interest, but others (including PSG, who held a meeting with the player's father in February) are sniffing about too.
