Chelsea wary of Man City and Everton success as they weigh up mega Real Madrid sale

Courtois

It’s the same old story for Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern this evening, with some fans agreeing with the potential sale of Thibaut Courtois and others vehemently against the prospect.

Such divide is reportedly mirrored at boardroom level, with reports in the Daily Mail claiming the club remain uneasy over the matter.

Though the Belgian, as many others in the squad, has seen a marked dip in form this season – he remains one of the top ‘keepers in Europe.

Real Madrid have been linked with a blockbuster move for the 23-year old custodian and his future is understood to remain unclear.

With incoming manager Antonio Conte said to be plotting a major overhaul, the former Atletico Madrid man is believed to be one of the top names who could be sacrificed in order to raise funds.

However, previous transfer decisions when it comes to selling talented youngster has come back to bite the Blues.

In the past, they have sold countrymen Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne after inconsistent seasons, only to see them establish themselves as top players on the continent.

The likes of Daniel Sturridge and Ryan Bertrand have also become seasoned internationals upon leaving Stamford Bridge.

As a result, there is understood to be apprehension behind the scenes in West London due to the vast amounts of talent Courtois clearly boasts.

Is this finally a show of Chelsea learning from past mistakes and planning ahead? Or should they ditch Courtois?
