The Daily Mirror has Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern sat up from their post celebration slumps and eagerly asking our landlord what is going on.
The publication carries news of a potentially sensational swap deal involving one of Chelsea’s most wanted targets and one of their prized young assets.
As we all know, Thibaut Courtois is on loan in the Spanish capital and has attracted more than his fair share of suitors – including Atletico Madrid – where he has been for the past couple of seasons.
Now, it seems that in order to land their target Costa, Mourinho is willing to consider allowing Courtois to remain at the Spanish side on a permanent basis.
Chelsea fans are not too pleased about this suggestion – not because they now think a forward is not needed, despite Eto’o scoring three times on the weekend, that is very much a necessity, but because of the fact that Courtois is one of the best young keepers around and Petr Cech is not exactly getting any younger.
In order to move forward and really build a side that can challenge in the future, Mourinho needs young players and you will not find a better one than Courtois according to our punters.
Will the swap deal take place? Let us know your thoughts below.
