Courtois’ agent denies meeting with PSG

Thibaut Courtois’ agent has denied reports that PSG had held a meeting with the Chelsea goalkeeper’s father.

Courtois will this summer enter the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and though Antonio Conte has stressed the need to keep the Belgium international, the Blues have so far failed to convince the keeper to commit to the club.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with Courtois, who is seemingly more open to a move than the La Liga giants’ other target, David de Gea.

Belgian TV station RTBF claims representatives from PSG have met with Courtois’ father as the 25-year-old considers his options.

PSG are looking for a goalkeeper after both Alphonse Areola and Kevin Trapp failed to seize their opportunities.

But Courtois’ agent, Christophe Henrotay, has denied that a meeting ever happened and encouraged any club interested in his client to speak to Chelsea first.

“I have never heard of that meeting,” he said.

“If any club is interested they know what they have to do – find a deal with Chelsea and then talk to me to check my client interest.

“RTBF is a small TV channel in Belgium and sometimes they like a little thrill to keep them alive. But their information is not correct.”
