Despite all the rumours and speculations about an agreement already reached with Real Madrid for next season, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois seems now willing to sign a contract extension with the Blues.

Speaking with HLN’s Kristof Terreur, the Belgian said about his contract: “It has just turned the new year, so we will wait a few weeks and then sit around the table. I’m happy at Chelsea and a deal is close.”

Courtois, also revealed to Kristof Terreur that his contract extension could be linked to Hazard‘s one: “Do Eden and I encourage each other? Yes. He will say ‘if you sign, I will sign’ and I say the same to him. With the money he will raise, you can buy five players but none of them will be like Eden. It would be like Barcelona losing Lionel Messi or Real Madrid losing Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Everybody seem focused on the signings of new players right now, but according to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, The Blues have, first, to agree a contract extension with manager Antonio Conte.

“Conte would be their most important signing” – Lampard said – “for me he was their man of the season. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit. You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well. I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.”

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that is confident about Romelu Lukaku‘s future at Goodison Park despite several rumors linking the Belgian star with a move back to Chelsea next summer.

The Toffee’s head coach said today: “The deal wasn’t agreed; 99.9 per cent is not 100 per cent and they are still trying to get the contract over the line. That’s what I know from the board.”

Lukaku recently claimed that ‘Everton as a football club has a great history, but the future has to be written’.

Koeman responded to the Belgian forward: “Of course I am not happy about that interview because, firstly, if Everton is not a club with a lot of ambition, I wasn’t the manager in Everton.

“Secondly, and I spoke with Rom this morning, I know it’s difficult but if you are a player, prepare yourself to play well and score goals – the rest needs to be done by the manager and the club.

“I spoke with Rom about this project. We had several talks about the future. But I am not so afraid about his situation because the player has two years more on his contract. Of course [I am confident of keeping him] and everybody knows what can happen in football. But you need to respect your contract”.

Lukaku showed his desire to play the Champions League and winning titles in the future, as a football player wants to be remembered.

“Every player has ambition, likes to play for titles, play in the Champions League. That’s a normal ambition. What we want to do and like to do is to show everyone that if there is one club out of the big six to make the next step then its Everton”.
