Chelsea transfer demand
12:30: Thibaut Courtois has told Chelsea to match Manchester United and Manchester City in this summer’s transfer market.
Asked if Chelsea need to spend, he said: “Yeah, I think so.
“I think especially if you see how City and United are spending and working.
“I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same – obviously within the limits of what’s possible as well.
“I think that the transfer market has gone pretty crazy. Nowadays you pay £80million for a defender I think – that’s crazy figures.
“We’ll see what’s going on and I am sure the board will do what needs to be done.”
Martial to Chelsea
