Sat 1st June – Chelsea daily transfer rumours and news round up
Thibaut Courtois has been a huge hit during his 2 year loan spell at Atletico Madrid but the La Liga club will have to stump out £1million if they want to sign the Belgian for another loan spell next season, the Metro reports. Courtois has been tipped to take over from Petr Cech at Stamford Bridge but the Chelsea stopper has been unrelenting in giving up his No.1 position which has forced Courtois to continue his development elsewhere. The 21-year old has refused to become Cech’s understudy and will return to London to replace Cech in Chelsea goal. Meanwhile, the Blues are prepared to let go of Ross Turnbull and Henrique Hilario this summer.
Chelsea have a struggle on their hands to keep hold of 15-year old midfielder Kyle Scott as the Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona are keen to sign the youngster. Scott is yet to sign professional terms with the Blues and has caught the attention of Europe’s elite after impressing for the Blues’ Youth team and England’s Under-16 set up.
