Is anyone shocked that this rumor was fake?

Did anyone actually believe the Daily Mail's story from earlier today claiming that Chelsea and Atletico Madrid had already agreed to a deal involving Thibaut Courtois and Diego Costa? If so, I hope you weren't too excited about it.

Unlike The Mail loosely citing the Spanish media, Terreur is a solid journalist with an excellent reputation. His information is generally well sourced and rock solid, so we can probably treat this one as fact. So much for the silly swap rumour The Daily Mail decided to fabricate today. It was fun while it lasted, I guess.
