The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are fearing the worst today…
Thibaut Courtois has quickly become a fan favourite amongst the Chelsea fans in the pub, with many impressed with how seamlessly took over the mantle from Petr Cech at Stamford Bridge.
They were certainly big boots to fill, but the Belgian has stepped into them without trouble.
Unsurprisingly, then, reports in the Times suggesting that there is trouble in paradise have come as a real shock to the fans in the Transfer Tavern. According to the Times, Courtois and Chelsea have hit a wall in their talks over a new deal – with the Belgian’s contract demands proving too much for Chelsea.
The fans in the pub are pretty split on this matter, with many suggesting that whilst Courtois is worth the money, Chelsea cannot afford to divert from their current wage structure.
The fans on the Chelsea subreddit, though, are far more cynical, and they have come with one real message: pay the man!
