Metro have Chelsea fans smiling even wider than they already are after claiming that Petr Cech could well be staying at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.
Not only have Arsenal been linked with the Czech Republic international stopper but a host of other clubs around Europe are also keen on Cech.
The long-serving Blues star has of course lost his place in the starting line-up to young Belgian Thibaut Courtois who returned from a loan spell at Atletico Madrid this summer.
Now as our landlord informs us, not only has Jose Mourinho moved to quash rumours of an impending exit for Cech but his agent has also spoken out to rubbish the idea of a January transfer, claiming that Cech would wait until the perfect club came along.
Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar spoke about his client’s future and noted: “If we add to this the actual little need of these few clubs to search a new goalkeeper in the winter’s transfer window, then you will find out that the chance of a transfer in the next weeks or months is not very high.”
Chelsea fans. Do you think Cech will be happy sitting on the bench or will he manage to force his way into the first team again at some point or another? Let us know your thoughts below.
