The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been utterly dismayed by their season and their attentions have already been cast towards the next campaign, when their team will attempt to wrestle back their Premier League title from the clutches of Leicester City.
Italian boss Antonio Conte will take charge at Stamford Bridge after leading Italy through Euro 2016 which takes place in the summer.
A group of Chelsea fans are chatting away here in the Tavern and one of them has spotted some alarming news via The Sun, who are claiming that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has finally announced his desire to move away from the Premier League club.
Despite a difficult season for the Belgian, his departure would leave a serious void to fill at the club and make signing a top keeper a number one priority for Conte upon his arrival.
The news will alert Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain who had both previously stated their intentions to bid for the custodian.
One Chelsea fan is sat playing on the fruit machine here in the Tavern and thinks Courtois has been a liability at times during this season, claiming the club should look to sign a new keeper anyway.
Chelsea fans, what do you make to this news? Is Courtois playing well enough to warrant another season between the posts at Stamford Bridge?Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
