The Daily Star have managed to get the majority of Chelsea fans looking up with sad expressions on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think Petr Cech has agreed a deal to leave the club.
The goalkeeper is set to join Arsenal and has agreed terms with the north London club after being assured he would be the number one keeper and a repeat of last season and spending the majority of his time on the bench would not happen.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, Cech is heads and shoulders above anything Arsenal have at the minute, so being the number one is only expected – and we think it will be a huge coup for Arsene Wenger and his men.
Chelsea fans. Is this terrible news or will you be fine without Cech considering Courtois is world class? Let us know your thoughts below.
