Give them a taste of their own medicine!
With it, to us, looking as if our Belgian goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, is looking to get his dream move to Real Madrid, we’re imagining that with the Premier League transfer window set to close in six days’ time, the 26-year-old is looking nervously at the sands of time running through the hour-glass.
Today, as has been the case on numerous occasions this summer, Courtois features in the transfer speculation in the media.
The tabloid publication, the Daily Star, picking up on something in Spanish media vehicle, Diario AS, is reporting that the Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, is keen to put the matter to bed and wants to hold talks with the keeper to sort the situation out once and for all, something we feel needs to be done as soon as practically possible.
But elsewhere, a different scenario is being reported by the media source, the Express, which is reporting that Real Madrid have bid £31 million for the goalkeeper believing it to be a fair price for someone who has just a year left on his contract.
Understandably, the bid has been rejected by Chelsea who value the keeper far higher than that miserly sum.
Indeed, investigating, it appears that the Spanish club operates under one rule for them and another rule for others.
Amongst the transfer speculation, we couldn’t help but notice that the tabloid publication, the,
Mirror, is reporting that Real Madrid, in order to deter Inter Milan from making a move for their Croatian midfielder, Luka Modric, have put a price tag of £670 million on the player, something that perfectly illustrates my point above.
Perhaps, when it comes to a valuation for Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea should be thinking along the same lines.
