Jose puts the record straight!
Whilst rumours continue to circulate in the tabloid press relating to the future of Thibaut Courtois, with one variant intimating that Jose Mourinho has agreed to sell the young Belgian to his former club, Real Madrid, another variant has a far different story.
It would appear that despite all his continual bluster about not coming back to Stamford Bridge to be the understudy to Petr Cech, Jose has already decided that Thibaut will not have the final say on where he would like to go with Jose remarking at his pre-match press conference, ahead of the Everton game,
"We won`t struggle to keep him. He has two more years of his contract."
"I don`t need to give assurances to any player. That player has a contract with Chelsea."
"If anyone wants him we have to know."
Now can these persistent rumours stop!
