Chelsea fans are looking up interestedly here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as Metro claim that the Blues are set to reward goalkeeper Thiabut Courtois with a new deal.
After Jose Mourinho made it very clear that the Belgian international star is his number one choice, it seems that the Chelsea board are keen to make it clear that Courtois will be a Blue for many seasons to come and want to hand him a new five year contract.
Mourinho alluded to the future when he gave his reasons for picking Courtois and we think handing the star an improved, long term deal is good business – but we have to wonder what will happen to Petr Cech now.
The majority of our punters think that Cech will be on his way, if not this summer then almost certainly next, and that is not something we want to see.
Chelsea fans: Do you think that Courtois deserves to be handed a new deal? Would you have picked him as your number one? Let us know your thoughts below.
