Chelsea legend Petr Cech’s move to the emirates stadium is becoming seemingly imminent as the day goes by. Earlier last week, Christophe Lollichon hinted at the transfer last week by saying Petr desires more playing time and wants to break the record for the most clean sheets in the English Premier League presently held by former Liverpool and Portsmouth goalkeeper, David James.
”Cech’s family like England, and a player is happy when his family is happy”(Independent). Chelsea’s captain, John Terry further confirmed the move when he said “there is a rumour of Cech moving to Arsenal Football club and if he does, he’d save them fifteen points.” Petr was an unbelievable professional last year. Cech will be sorely missed and will improve any side he goes to (Goal).
Petr Cech was demoted to the bench last year following the arrival of Belgian prodigy, Thibaut Courtois. The former Genk of Belgium goalkeeper was sent on loan to Atletico Madrid after Chelsea purchased him, in order to gain more experience, which he did. This made Mourinho and the Chelsea board decide to bring him back and give him the No. 1 spot previously held by the departing Czech goalkeeper, Petr Cech. Although Chelsea coach Mourinho is not willing to sell Cech to a rival as he will be strengthening them. But it was reported that the Russian billionaire who owns the club has sanctioned the sale.
