Whilst Thibaut Courtois was touted by the Blues in the Football Transfer Tavern as the long-term successor to Petr Cech – that is looking less and less likely on a near-monthly basis.
Whether it be poor form or comments made by the Belgian – it appears clear the Courtois will eventually leave the club; and Chelsea need to prepare for that eventuality.
Gianluigi Donnarumma represents a perfect example of a replacement, given his young age and already impressive experience.
AC Milan aren’t the club they once were, and they cannot hold on to their top players for long periods of time anymore – and Donnarumma is certainly of that calibre.
For just £8.50m (as per Transfermarkt.com) – Donnarumma is a bargain.
