I disagree. Mou is trying to ease Lukaku
into a starting spot. He has played in both games so far and looked dangerous. He will play a lot this year in increasing amounts and is the future of Chelsea so he should be with Chelsea now.Courtois
is a different situation. There is no keeper rotation policy at Chelsea, other than giving backups some minutes in League Cup games. Courtois can only be assured of first team play at Athletico.
I worry that Chelsea will lose Courtois before Cech is ready to move on. Cech has another 10 years left in him, and most or all of that will be with Chelsea. It would be great if they could keep Courtois under contract and loan him out to whatever club he wants to be at, until it is his time. I just can't see that happening though.
