According to journalist Karel Haring, of the Czech source Daily Sport, Cech’s representative Viktor Kolar has admitted that his client is definitely looking for a move to one of the major clubs linked with his signature [via the Manchester Evening News].

“Arsenal, United or PSG are all top clubs. And Petr would like to join one of them – definitely,” Kolar began, “Petr expects that [Chelsea owner Roman] Abramovic not [coach Jose] Mourinho will decide about his future, based on their mutual agreement from last year.”


The Czech stopper is one of several goalkeepers to have been linked with a move to Old Trafford following suggestions that David de Gea will be leaving the club this summer.

The Spain international is reportedly wanted by Real Madrid [via Gazzetta dello Sport], and Louis van Gaal admitted this weekend that it would be difficult to keep hold of the keeper should the Bernabeu giants make a move.

“He is Spanish, he is Spanish international and now a Spanish club is coming,” the coach acknowledged, speaking to Sky Sports after the 1-1 draw with Arsenal.

“His girlfriend is Spanish, his father and mother come every week or every two weeks here. So it is difficult.”

32-year-old Cech arrived at Chelsea 11 years ago, and has since made well over 300 league appearances for the Stamford Bridge outfit. While his place in the starting XI has been taken by Thibaut Courtois this season, the veteran stopper can look back on a successful career in West London.

He has won four Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa League and four FA Cups, amidst a host of other domestic honours.
