"We have so many games at the moment, and I prefer to focus on the team's games, my own performances".

Should they change their minds at the end of the season, Courtois or the Spain worldwide would be the prime candidates.

Thibaut Courtois was signed by André Villas-Boas as a future replacement for Petr Cech and the Belgian shot-stopper has really stepped into the role of Chelsea's number one goalkeeper during the past couple of seasons after spending the first three years of his Blues career on loan at Atletico Madrid.

Courtois, a 25-year-old Belgian global, joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011, before being immediately sent out on-loan to Atletico Madrid. In his demands were met, he would earn around 230,000 euros per week, bringing him into the salary realm of Manchester United's David De Gea, the Premier League's highest paid goalkeeper.

Courtois has offered no indication that he is considering a move any time soon, but has also been unable to offer any guarantees that his long-term future lies in west London.

He told The Guardian: 'The most important thing is to perform well for myself and the team.

European giants Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are all monitoring his situation as Chelsea could be forced to cash-in on the goalkeeper next summer. I don't think there have been any new developments.

At Chelsea he has won the League Cup (2015) and two Premier League titles (2015 and 2017).
