Chelsea’s Cech wanted by PSG and Monaco
The agent of Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has confirmed his client has been the subject of an initial approach from both Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, Sky Sports has reported.
Viktor Kolar told media in the Czech Republic that Cech is happy to stay at Stamford Bridge and has been given no reason by Jose Mourinho to believe his place is under threat from Thibaut Courtois, who has returned to Chelsea after three years on loan at Atletico Madrid.
“Nothing changes. He has two years left on his Chelsea contract and has an interest to continue there,” Kolar said. “Mourinho did not tell him that he would not count on him anymore.
“We have not been given any signals that Petr would be made available [for transfer],” he continued. “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. Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest and we have also communicated with Monaco.
“I would get in touch with [Andoni] Zubizarreta (Barcelona sporting director) and people at Real Madrid,” Kolar went on. “These are clubs we would consider if Chelsea wanted to get rid of Petr.
“We would also consider Bayern but they have Neuer there. Then there are leagues Petr would not go to. For instance, the Serie A, because clubs in that league have problems.”
Cech has been at Chelsea since the summer of 2004, moving from Rennes and winning a host of trophies with the Blues, including the Premier League title three times and the Champions League in 2012. He has made more than 400 appearances for the London club.
