Chelsea target top class keeper as Cech departure grows closer

BegovicThe Telegraph have managed to put a smile on the faces of Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, which as our landlord quips, is quite the achievement after the Blues edged closer to landing Radamel Falcao and letting Petr Cech leave for Arsenal.

The reason for their smiles however is because the Blues are reportedly interested in bringing Asmir Begovic in as their number two – and we think that is a far better option than Robert Green, and one that we could certainly see making their fans breathe easy again, especially should Thibaut Courtois succumb to injury.

One snag could well be the fact that Manchester United may be keen on the Stoke City goalkeeper, not to mention the fact that he would be joining Chelsea as their back-up option.

Chelsea fans. Do you really think Begovic would be interested in a move considering it would mean he sits on the bench for the best years of his career? Will the lure of trophies prove to be too strong? Let us know your thoughts below.
