Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who is regarded as one of the best stoppers in the world will not entertain talks over contract extension till the end of the season.

'We have so many games at the moment, and I prefer to focus on the team's matches, my own performances, and there will be time enough towards the end of the season to have talks'.

The Belgium No 1's deal expires at the end of next season, and he rejected the offer of a new one in the summer.

Courtois' contract expires in 2019 and in a little over twelve months time, the Belgium worldwide is free to talk to overseas clubs.

Courtois, a 25-year-old Belgian worldwide, joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011, before being immediately sent out on-loan to Atletico Madrid.

'Regarding my contract, that's something where Chelsea must deal with my agent.

Courtois is not rushing to resolve his future.

European giants Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are all monitoring his situation as Chelsea could be forced to cash-in on the goalkeeper next summer.

Chelsea signed Courtois from Genk in 2011 before allowing him to spend three seasons with Atletico as Petr Cech blocked his path at Stamford Bridge.

Despite this, Chelsea fans can take some comfort from the fact that Courtois has said on a number of occasions that he is happy at Stamford Bridge, as well as saying that he is open to signing a new contract when the terms are right.

Courtois, 25, has won two Premier League titles and a League Cup with Chelsea, but the warmer weather of Spain often proves tempting for Europe's biggest stars.
