Petr Cech is set to leave Chelsea for a stint in France with Monaco as the likely destination

Share

Chelsea legend Petr Cech is in line to leave Stamford Bridge after a successful ten year stint with the London club. The Czech International will in all certainty join nouveau riche French side Monaco after it appears that Thibaut Courtois will take the number one goalkeeping role for the Blues.

It is believed that Cech asked manager Jose Mourinho to facilitate his exit after Courtois rejoined Chelsea, and the Portuguese boss has agreed to do so, Chelsea are expected to let him go for a symbolic amount of around 2m. Monaco and PSG are both interested.

cech Chelsea legend set to leave club, Monaco likely destination

Monaco are the favorites to sign him, given Victor Valdes’s injury and Argentine Sergio Romero’s imminent departure to Napoli and the fact they are more willing to pay big wages for Cech than PSG.

Soccerlens view: Cech’s departure from Chelsea looks imminent but we believe that the reports from France aren’t entirely correct. Italian side Napoli had earlier signed  Mariano Andujar, the Argentine goalkeeper who will spend the season on loan at Catania.

Moreover, Rafa Benitez’s side are also close to complete the loan deal of Liverpool’s with both the clubs agreeing to pay half of Reina’s wages.

Sergio Romero’s heroics at the World Cup despite featuring in just a handful of games for Monaco would mean that the French side can ill afford to lose a player at the top of his game.

  1. Chelsea, dont sell the legendary stopper.

  2. Cfc u had beta gotten atleast 20m for cech oo. He can still play anoda 5yrs

  3. I guess this should be a speculation, cos cech is still chelsea nos 1 prominent first choice keeper, instead of disposing cech, while not schwezzer or blackman instead

  4. Cech is the best goalkepper chelsea has ever had after 10 years now he has the right to leave the club for is own intrest! Jose Morinho Did The Right By accepting is decision to let him leave the club!But what is unfair is that they have to sell him for 2m,at least they should sell him for 20m to respect him as the best goalkeeper chelsea has ever had.
