You said you're waiting for Sky and Guradians and others to report about this. They have picked it up now..

Where did I mention Sky Sports? They ended up quoting their own sources in Italy and we all know Sky spread BS from time to time. None of Guardian, Telegraph and LES have reported it. Heck, the most reliable source on Belgian players reported nothing has happened from the last contract conversation but people conveniently ignored it.

the question is do Atlético Rated Oblak better than courtios if that's the case I can see Atlético asking for money and courtios 

Its a fair question, and oblak is rated extremely high. But i can't see how they could ask for that, Courtois is seemingly held in high regard from clubs across europe. It is apparently only CFC fans who want him gone haha. I think if offered Atleti would take the deal for the same reasons we would, a world class goalie swap where both goalies are happy to move on and try something new & no hassle with trying to pry another top clubs #1 away.

It's alright if you don't think he isn't reliable. I do. No one gets it right all the time, but he does get stuff right mostly.

We would have to pay on top in case of a swap, because Oblak has a contract until 2021. There is no way they would let a similarly rated player on a longer contract go without getting anything in return. Since Courtois has only 1 year left we have no hand to play in negotiations, we need to get rid or risk losing him for nothing... and possibly to Liverpool (or even Man United if Real were to buy DDG). Unless Atletico are super friendly and the players put pressure on (can't see Oblak being eager to join us btw), I can't see us walking away with a straight swap.

I won't lose any sleep over this one. We binned Cech for him, the GK coach, reportedly offered him 200k a week months ago etc, if he doesn't want to be here then fuck off.

100%

No "big" clubs really need a keeper.  But, I don't even care what we get for him because he's gone on a free next summer anyway.  Sell him to Getafe for 10M for all I care.

What? ^_^

Look at what happened to United in the 6 years between Schmeichel and VDS, or City last season.

The guy does not care at all with Chelsea. He made it clear so many times. He is just a mercenary. Sell it with max price. Basta.

He is even toxic with Belgian national team - and caught up to disclose confidential information. Good riddance.

If he does the business on the pitch which he by inlarge has throughout his time here, i couldn't care if he was a secret Spurs fan.

Great keeper. 

Super consistent and an absolute wall in goal. For all the talk about him not being able to stop shots, he was still second in save percentage this season only to DDG. Tells you the level at which he is held to and judged at. 

If he goes, Butland or Allison will be good replacements I think.

A certain cup final two weeks ago.

Pretty sure he has one of the lowest shots against to save ratios in the league. One game doesn’t change that.

Very much doubt that, and even if he did his ariel game still makes him a big plus. We see just how good Tibo is everytime Caballero plays.

He wasn't terrible at all lol, he didn't hold on to 2  relatively easy shots early on, but it caused no danger whatsoever.

Belgium on the other hand were terrible, except for Hazard

We hardly binned Cech, he was obviously going to be demoted to number 2, he was declining, Courtois had just had 3 amazing seasons at Atletico where he was arguably the best GK in La Liga. So many folk here wanted Courtois to replace Cech and anybody who says other wise is a liar. Yes hes playing the game a bit, he wants to move etc or is trying to pressure the board for money etc but its modern day football. Eden is in a similar place just nowhere near as blunt about it. Even if we do sell him, he cost us 8m and that was an absolute steal considering how good he has turned out and if we can convince him to resign then it will be a very very good move because he is only 26 years old. If we replace him with the likes of Butland then god help us. Alisson probably wont happen and Oblak is the in same boat, will cost too much and I can't see anybody spending 50m plus for a GK yet alone Chelsea.

His aerial presence is the only notable difference I see and it's not exactly something that's hard for a 6ft 6in GK.

 

Caballero isn't Hilario.
