Metro have Chelsea fans smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the publication claimed that Thibaut Courtois will be staying at Stamford Bridge.
The highly-rated goalkeeper has been on loan at Atletico Madrid and as one of our punters notes, has been simply fantastic.
The Belgian international has been a major part of the success Atleti and Diego Simeone have shared and we think that it is certainly time for him to come back to Stamford Bridge and make a claim for the number one shirt.
There had been some uncertainty over Courtois’ future, with Petr Cech still one of the best keepers in the world and the younger star unwilling to play second fiddle to him – which we agree with.
After a chat with Jose Mourinho, the player claims that everything has been sorted and noted: ‘We talked about my situation. And after this World Cup everything will be clear to everyone.’
This has obviously led to some of our punters questioning just how much of a future Cech has at Stamford Bridge and we think this summer is certainly an interesting one for the Blues who are also finalising a deal to bring Diego Costa to the club.
Chelsea fans. Who would you have as your number one next season? Is it time for a change? Let us know your thoughts below.
