Petr Cech will be leaving Chelsea for Arsenal in a few days’ time according to Chelsea goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon. The coach who was interviewed stated that Petr Cech will definitely leave Chelsea as the transfer market looms nearer. Some reports are even claiming the deal could be announced in hours.
He believes that the Czech national who is already a target for billionaire club PSG, will snub a move to France for a move to Arsenal. Cech who was up staged from his normal starting berth by Thibaut Courtois still has more years before he will consider hanging his gloves and will not consider bench warming an option at Chelsea.
The 33 year old who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012 has spent 11 years with the club and will be allowed to leave for Chelsea due to his status within the club despite manager Jose Mourinho’s desire that he move to another league instead of moving to a rival. However, Christophe Lollichon reckons that Cech’s preference stems from two factors which as e puts them are “His family like England. And a player is happy when his family is happy. He wants to stay in England” and “Much is said about him at PSG, but the problem is that when you have evolved in England, Ligue 1 seems light compared to what Petr has experienced.”
So there you have it, Petr Cech will be signing for the gunners and though it might seem awkward, we will get used to seeing him wearing the club jersey next campaign.
