Chelsea 25-year-old star started negotiations with European giants

Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois has begun talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a summer move to France’s Ligue 1, according to MailOnline.

The Belgian goalkeeper, who is expected to be the No.1 keeper for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Russia, has only over 18 months left on his deal and is stalling on signing a contract extension with the Blues.

After spending four seasons in London, Courtois is eyeing a transfer away from Stamford Bridge, and reports in France identify Paris Saint-Germain as the leading contender.

RMC Sport claims that Thibaut is impressed by the Parisian project, and is eager on linking up with the club, with negotiations now underway.

Unai Emery has led his team to a strong position in Ligue 1 current season, with the Parisians currently sitting on the top of standings, 14 points ahead of second place AS Monaco with 5 games to go.

In spite of this, heavily speculation in the latest months have claimed that Emery could be set to depart from Parc des Princes this summer, with German manager Thomas Tuchel the frontrunner to substitute him.
