Chelsea star's contract talks to be shelved until the summer

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois’ contract talks will not resume until the summer amid rumours he has held a secret meeting with Paris Saint-Germain , something his representatives have dismissed.

The Belgian, who has attracted the attention of Spanish giants Real Madrid was supposed to begin talks with the west London club last month.

But this will not happen until the 2017/18 season has finished, leading to concerns that he could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

Courtois’ agent, Christophe Henrotay was forced to come out and deny that the alleged meetings with PSG had occurred after Belgian TV station RTFB claimed Courtois and his father met representatives from the French club.

But Henrotay did not completely close the door on clubs making an approach for his client.

Henrotay said: “I have never heard of that meeting [between Courtois and PSG]

"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."

The 25-year-old is under contract with the Blues until the end of next season but has yet to agree to a new deal, with Real Madrid also reportedly ready to table a summer bid for his services.

Courtois even showed signs of dissent with his current employers after saying he was baffled by the Antonio Conte's decision to sub Eden Hazard in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last weekend.

Courtois and Chelsea take on Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday , a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT.
