Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are worried about the future of one of their stars, as losing his services would cause for major concern at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have been poor in this season’s defence of their Premier League title, as Manchester City currently sit 22 points ahead of Antonio Conte’s men and remain on course for securing the trophy. Indeed, to compile more misery on our local residents here in the Tavern, Thibaut Courtois’ future in the English capital is looking bleak, as according to reports from ESPN, the Belgian is interested in a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The French club have made the Chelsea shot-stopper aware of their interest in signing him, and is apparently open to their advances, according to a source close to the club. Indeed, it’s believed that informal talks between PSG and Courtois have taken place as the ‘keeper is yet to commit to a new contract at Stamford Bridge, but no formal interest has been registered.
Subsequently, the Belgian has indicated that he is not against the idea of potentially moving to the French capital, but both sides made it clear during their meeting that there are certain factors that could influence a move. Indeed, much to the delight of many of our local Chelsea supporters, UEFA’s financial fair play watchdog and the expiry of PSG chief Unai Emery’s contract at the end of the season could cause for the interest to come to nothing.
Thibaut Courtois supposedly being open to a move away from Stamford Bridge could be crushing for the Blues’ future, as one of the best goalkeepers in world football could be set to walk away from the club. Although, there has been no formal interest registered, which means that it’s still early days in Paris Saint-Germain’s pursuit of the Belgian international.
