Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up at the bar and waiting to hear what the Daily Telegraph have to say after the publication claimed that the Blues had placed a £73 million price tag on the head of Thibaut Courtois.
Given they are about to let Petr Cech leave, it is clear that the Blues want to bring in another stopper but will certainly turn down any and all interest in their number one.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and a burger by the bar, we think that the Blues will be keeping their number one for at least the next decade and after seeing how good Courtois was during his maiden season at the club, we can fully understand why that is the case.
Chelsea fans. Is this something you think will ward off interest? After getting rid of Cech, is it basically a done deal that you will keep for Courtois for a long time to come anyway? Let us know your thoughts below.
