Chelsea fans are looking up with distress here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claimed that not only will Petr Cech be making his cross capital move but he will also become the highest paid player at the Emirates Stadium.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, this comes as no shock at all given Arsenal are desperate to land the stopper and frankly, given how much better Cech is than anything the north London side have currently, he certainly deserves to become one of their top earners – because he will be one of their top performers.
The move looks like getting closer by the day, but our Chelsea fans are still holding out hope that the Blues will put their foot down and keep the player – but we can’t see that happening.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that letting Cech go is the first of a big summer of mistakes? Is Rob Green an adequate replacement? Let us know your thoughts below.
