Fifa Coins - Chelsea looking for Courtois-successor
'Chelsea is looking for Courtois-successor and makes eye fall on very surprising candidate' Saturday 21 July 2018 at 12:50
A striking transgender air in The Sun: Chelsea would have Joe Hart in the eye as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian seems to be on the way to Real Madrid, so the Londoners are looking for a new goalkeeper.
The Sun's coverage is remarkable to say the least. Hart has had a not so booming year behind West Ham United, who hired him from Manchester City. The 31-year-old Englishman has not had a future with the Premier League champion for some time and can leave for around 6.5 million euros.
Because manager Maurizio Sarri wants to strengthen the selection considerably, Hart is seen as a cheap solution. This leaves room for other top purchases. For example, Gonzalo Higuaín is explicitly associated with a transfer to Stamford Bridge. Hart is also interesting for Chelsea because of his English nationality.
The Blues seem to be about 35 million euros for Courtois. The Belgian does not want to extend his contract for another year.
