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