It seems that not a week goes by without a Thibaut Courtois transfer rumour and its getting a little bit boring.
This week the Independent published the latest Courtois transfer rumour
Courtois Transfer Rumours Make Cech Departure Tragedy
Watching club legend Petr Cech leave the club with some of his best years still ahead of him was painful. Sacrificed for the bright young talent at the top of the European game Courtois it is frustrating to see the low regard Courtois seems to hold Stamford Bridge.
The problem is that years on loan in Spain and a wandering eye have given Courtois a sense that he owes the club nothing and he should catch the first plane back to Spain should one of the two giants of La Liga come calling.
Combined with a dip in form the decision to cast aside Cech and embrace the young Belgian are looking like a mistake.
It seems to be a trait with the Belgians we buy but they have ideas above their station and are always looking for a move or saying something to upset the applecart. This uusually when on national duty-free from the constraints of the Chelsea PR machine.
If Courtois wants to leave then fine, but he should stop being such a pussy about it, make a decision and take the gamble of throwing a public hissy fit. See what happens and hope that one of the Spanish clubs actually wants to buy you.
His form has been ropey for the last 18 months and there is not guarantee that he will be on the shopping list of Real Madrid of Barcelona, especially as we are going to want a king’s ransom for him.
His place in the Chelsea line-up is far from guaranteed, Asmir Begovic is a top quality goalkeeper and could quite easily step into the breach should Courtois continue to cost us points.
As for Cech, it is still painful to see him at the Emirates, it would never happen but I would have him back at Stamford Bridge in a heartbeat.
Until then Courtois transfer rumours need to stop and the boy needs to Cech himself and find some form rather than wrecking himself by fuelling pointless transfer speculation.
