The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are not happy with this…
Chelsea have been on a roll this season, and much of that has gone down to the stellar defensive stability that Antonio Conte has built.
N’Golo Kante marshalls the defence, and if the opposition somehow manage to break through him they have the trio of Luiz, Azpilicueta and Cahill to deal with – and then the imposing figure of Thibaut Courtois stands alone behind them.
It is an impressive and near-unstoppable defensive line – but could it be about to lose one of its most important components?
This news has devastated the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, not least because they have always thought that it could be coming. Courtois has always had an affinity to the city where he made his name, and this report appears to be the final nail in the coffin.
It will undoubtedly come as a crucial blow to the Blues, who, in truth, were blessed with goalkeeping solidity under Petr Cech – and Thibaut Courtois’ future has reaffirmed the fact that things rarely turn out that way.
Our landlord thinks that Conte has a lot of work to do, to either keep Courtois at Stamford Bridge or find a replacement.
