Possible Swap deals in the summer

2. Diego Costa and Thibaut Courtois

There has been a lot said about Thibaut Courtois since his arrival at Chelsea in 2011. Highly rated, the young goalkeeper looks set to take over as the Chelsea No.1 in a few years, assuming Chelsea can fend off interest from some of Europe’s best clubs. Recent reports from Spain and England suggest that both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are preparing bids, as well as current loan club Athletico Madrid. With such demand, and praise coming from the continent over, the Belgian seems to be fast-tracking his development somewhat. Thibaut Nicolas Marc Courtois-one of Europe’s finest?

The young Chelsea goal keeper and the prolific Atletico Madrid centre forward might exchange clubs in case the Spanish side force Mourinho into the inclusion of Courtois plus the transfer fee in the deal.

This has been a very strong rumour for a long time and we can be expecting such a switch especially as Courtois has not yet decided his long term future and wants to be the first choice at Chelsea. Courtois and Costa, both have been instrumental in Atletico Madrid’s success story this season as Messi, arguably the world’s best, is yet to score against the Belgian shot stopper. Same has been the case with Costa, who is competing with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo in the goals scored department.
Despite that, the possibility of this deal happening is less as Mourinho has already said that he wishes to have two quality keepers fight for their position in Chelsea.
