Our Chelsea fans are naturally feeling good here in the Transfer Tavern at the moment but things could take a dent with The Sun claiming Thibaut Courtois is a target for Real Madrid.
The Blues have been flying this season and are currently six points clear at the top of the Premier League table, looking good to reclaim the title they last won in 2014/15.
Their Belgian stopper’s performances have been key in that and so any suggestion that he could be on the way out of the club is not going to be welcome.
However, it appears that such a suggestion is being made with the Spanish club reportedly wanting to bring the ‘keeper back to Madrid after a stint he’d had with city rivals Atletico earlier in his career.
Should any deal take place, the report suggests it will take place in the summer so Chelsea may have time to find a suitable replacement if they deem Asmir Begovic not good enough to step up.
Our landlord thinks Chelsea should do all they can to keep hold of him, though, as he is one of the best in the league.
What do you make of it, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
