Chelsea fans are keen to hear what the Daily Mail has to say here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
It seems that according to the publication, current number one Petr Cech will be going nowhere this summer – and will be number one next season.
All this is despite the fact that Cech may miss the start of the season with a shoulder injury and also the worry that it may well affect the future of keeper elect Thibaut Courtois.
We had thought that it was time for the on loan Belgian star to return to Stamford Bridge and make his claim for the jersey.
However, the Belgian stopper will not go back to his parent club without assurances that he will be the first choice – and that is not something Jose Mourinho is willing to offer this summer.
However, roll on one year and it seems that is exactly what the Special One has plans to do – bringing the young star back to the club and assuring him he will be playing week in, week out.
There are also plans to offer Courtois a new, lucrative deal to keep him tied with Chelsea for many years to come and having seen the performances by the stopper this season, we think that is a very good idea!
Does Cech have more left to give or is it time to hand over the shirt to the impressive Courtois? Let us know your thoughts below.
