Balague: Courtois remaining patient before deciding Chelsea future

Thibaut Courtois' future is dependent on the movement of the other major goalkeepers in Europe, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

Belgian international Courtois is out-of-contract at the end of next season and recently hinted his desire to return to Spain due to family circumstances.

With the future of his peers, namely Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak and Real Madrid's Keylor Navas, up in the air, Balague believes it is too early to make a prediction on what Courtois will do in the summer.

"Courtois is waiting to see what happens with everyone else," said Balague.

"So, for instance, if Kepa goes to Real Madrid, what will happen to Navas? Is Oblak going to go to PSG?

"It's definitely going to be an interesting summer for goalkeepers but it is too early to say what will happen with Courtois."
