Chelsea fans are looking a little bit worried here in the Football Transfer Tavern as The Mirror comments on the future of Petr Cech.
The long-standing number one is considering his Blues future given Thibaut Courtois is set to return from his loan spell in La Liga, and potentially take the number one shirt.
According to our Chelsea regulars, they would not sell Cech and a bit of healthy competition is not a bad thing.
However, given the fact that neither Cech nor Courtois want to play second fiddle to each other next season, one may have to leave.
Last season’s back-up keeper Mark Schwarzer has also penned a one-year extension at the club, leading to more questions over the future of Cech, whose agent made it very clear he was in high demand.
He claimed: “We have not been given any signals that Petr would be made available [for transfer]. If that was the case, though, you have to realise that Petr is one of the world’s top goalkeepers and has a certain salary.
“There are not many clubs who could afford to sign him. If he were to leave, we’re discussing two or three clubs in the world. The situation has developed in a way, of course, but for now he is staying at Chelsea.”
Chelsea fans. Who would you like to see as your number one next season? Is it time for Cech to go? Let us know your thoughts below.
