Arsenal is considered to be the favourites to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, but a move is not as cut and dry as you might think with the Blues ready to hear offers from other clubs that include Paris Saint-Germain and possible Manchester United.
Chelsea has done the right thing in agreeing to let the 33-year-old join a rival Premiership team despite the reluctance shown by manager Jose Mourinho, yet given options we can’t help feel that they would be more comfortable seeing him play in Europe rather than for a club who in all likelihood will be challenging them for the title next season.
While talking about the situation last month Mourinho said: “If it’s in my hands he would never go, would never go to big clubs with fantastic teams. Big candidates to win the Premier League. I would never let him go.
“But it’s not in my hands. My perfect scenario is that he stays with us, I think he belongs to this club, this club belongs to his history and to his life, too.
“I can imagine that a 32 or 33 year old keeper feels young and feels the passion to play every game.”
Everyone seems in agreement that he will be sold for around £10 million and we cannot help feel that should both Arsenal and PSG offer the same amount he will be playing in Paris next season rather than London.
