Thankfully!

With Petr Cech having, recently, stuck himself at the top of the pile, Chelsea-wise, as far as a record number of clean sheets is concerned, it`ll be interesting to see what Jose Mourinho decides to do with Thibaut Courtois come the end of the season.

Over in Spain, Courtois continues to enhance a growing reputation whilst on loan at Atletico Madrid. In fact his displays have convinced the Atletico Madrid club president, Enrique Cerezo, that he is the best in Europe and wants to make the current loan deal a permanent one.

Quotes in the press from Cerezo read,

“Courtois is incredible on the pitch. We are interested but the price is too much for a keeper.”

“We want to try to do business, but it depends on Chelsea. We must study everything.”

“But for me it is clear that Courtois is now the best goalkeeper in Europe.”


Valued at around £20 million it would appear that we should be thankful that Courtois is so good he`s priced himself out of a permanent move to Atletico Madrid.
