The atmosphere at Chelsea is not exactly great at the moment.
The reigning English champions have lost three of their last four in the Premier League to drop into fifth position in the table.
Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester United was particularly damaging, and there is now big pressure on the Blues heading into this weekend’s clash with league leaders Manchester City.
The Chelsea supporters not a happy bunch at the moment, and it appears that many are losing patience with the club’s number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
The 25-year-old, who is valued at £45m by transfermarkt.co.uk, is without question one of the top stoppers in world football, but he will be out of contract at the end of next season, and contract talks have again stalled.
The Chelsea fans feel that Courtois’ head has been turned by constant talk of interest from Real Madrid, and a number would now be prepared for the Belgium international to leave Stamford Bridge in this summer’s transfer window.
