Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says he will decide where he will play next season after the World Cup according to Daily Express.

The Belgian shot-stopper was impressive for the Blues during their FA Cup triumph over fellow Premier League campaigners Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, May 19.

Eden Hazard’s lone goal from the spot kick in the 22nd minute powered the Stamford Bridge side to a slim victory to help them win a title this recently concluded season.

Courtois’ contract expires next season and the Stamford Bridge side are willing to tie him down with an improved deal beyond next summer.

"Whatever he or the club decides, they will know what they do," the goalkeeper said.

"Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year.

"We'll see what is going to happen after the World Cup."

Courtois and his countryman, Eden Hazard have stalled on signing a new deal with the club with both of them on Real Madrid’s radar ahead for the coming league season.

I think from the start of this season, because don't forget the speculation started after our first defeat against Burnley, my position was always the same: I'm committed for this club, despite a lot of speculation.

"One day I had the possibility to go to the national team, one day this team, one day another important team.

“In every press conference I always say I'm committed to this club, to respect my contract. As you know very well our job is not simple. I understand that the club can make a decision, a positive decision, a negative decision.

"I'm the first to understand. I'm the coach of a great, important club, in England and the world. It's right that the club demands of me a lot.

I think you have to understand if in this season we had the maximum or not. There is also this possibility with this group of players we did the maximum. I have great respect for my club.

“For sure we'll make the best decision. I'm the first to accept every decision for the future.

“After these two seasons I will always love this colour, these fans, this club. Also if my future must be in a different way.

Courtois was sent on loan to Atletico Madrid immediately he was signed by Chelsea from Genk in 2011, and three seasons after, he became the Blues number one.

He has won an Europa League cup, two Premier League titles and a number of other domestic trophies both in England and Spain.
