Chelsea Swap Shock: Mourinho ready to replace long-serving star?

Thibaut Courtois

Chelsea are reportedly mulling over whether to bring back Thibaut Courtois this summer, and send Petr Cech to La Liga side Atletico Madrid.


The Blues own both goalkeepers, and have found themselves in a precarious situation with regards to the 21-year-old Courtois, who has never played a game for the club, and has spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

The Belgian number one is growing tired of the insecurity of a rolling loan deal, and wants his parent club to make a decision regarding his future, with Real Madrid and Barcelona reportedly joining Atletico in wanting to permanently prise the player off of Chelsea.

According to Italian site, ‘’, Chelsea are now considering a shock swap deal, with Cech heading to Spain, and Courtois given the chance to cement his place as Chelsea number one.

Courtois is already seen as one of the very best keepers in the game, and Chelsea would be loathe to lose such a talent.

But considering the loyalty of Cech, let alone his consistent good form, should Chelsea sacrifice the 31-year-old in favour of a younger model?

What do you think? Should Chelsea ditch Cech for Courtois? Let me know in the comments below…
