The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the summer when incoming boss Antonio Conte will start work as the club’s new manager.
One immediate area that needs addressing upon the Italian’s arrival could be the goalkeeper situation at the club, with reports in the landlord’s copy of the The Telegraph suggesting that both current stoppers could be about to leave.
Regular first choice keeper Thibaut Courtois is considering a £79 million move to Real Madrid whilst Bosnian Asmir Begovic has told the Blues that he does not want to stay next season, if he isn’t guaranteed to play regular football.
Conte has already begun holding talks with his squad and the goalkeeping duo were in discussions with the Italian yesterday, where it is thought that pair got their thoughts out in the open.
One Chelsea fan is over by the smoking area at the back of the Tavern and he thinks that the pair should be offloaded anyway, stating that Courtois has underachieved this season, whilst also claiming Begovic doesn’t really have the desired quality to play for Chelsea.
Chelsea fans, would you welcome the departure of both current goalkeepers? Who would you like to see replace the outgoing duo?
