Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho set to give Courtois the nod, Cech may consider move [Daily Mail]
Despite the fact that Jose Mourinho refused to confirm who will be his Number 1 keeper for the league opener at his press conference yesterday, the Daily Mail claim to be privy to insider knowledge, and claim with conviction that Thibaut Courtois will start on Monday against Burnley.
That being said, it doesn’t take a massive gamble to predict that Mourinho will give Courtois the Number 1 shirt on Monday: the Belgian’s started most pre-season games, and he only came back to Chelsea on condition that he’d be guaranteed number 1.
The Mail are adamant about it in any case, and claim that this will now throw Cech’s future into doubt, claiming the Czech keeper may consider a move away, with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Real Madrid all understood to be interested.
One game on the bench will hardly provoke such a reaction from Cech though, will it? Who’s to say Mourinho won’t rotate the keepers for the first few games?
