Thibaut Courtois is ready to shelve talks over a new contract as the uncertainty over his Chelsea future intensified on Tuesday.

The Belgium global has less than two years left to run on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, with that agreement set to expire in the summer of 2019.

Football.london suggest Courtois wants the same wages as the Spaniard - the Premier League's highest-paid 'keeper - and talks will begin at the end of the season.

In the buildup to the Champions League clash with Qarabag, the star made it clear that he is more concerned with the team and their performances than his contract situation.
