Chelsea are considering demanding a fee of £20m for their legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech in the summer, with as many as six top clubs vying for his signature.
The Blues legend has seen his no.1 spot taken by youngster Thibaut Courtois this season, leading to inevitable rumours that the 32-year-old’s time at Stamford Bridge is up.
Nonetheless, when called into action, the Czech international has displayed no signs of a dip in form or suffering from a lack of playing time, most recently starting in the Capital One Cup final triumph – leading former Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann to say that the veteran stopper has his “best years still ahead of him”.
Premier League outfits, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, as well as La Liga giants Real Madrid and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, are all keen on acquiring his services at the end of the season.
Given such an amount of interest for Cech, and knowing there is still plenty left in his tank, Chelsea could ask for as much as £20m to prize him away from West London.
