Petr Cech ‘given permission’ to talk to other clubs….

Goalkeeper Petr Cech could be set to end his 11-year career at Chelsea after his agent said that he has been given permission to talk to other clubs. The 32-year-old, who has been at the club since 2004, has only made 16 appearances this season, with Belgian Thibaut Courtois now first choice. “Petr still has a contract that ends in a year,” said agent Viktor Kolar. “I can confirm, however, that we have been permitted by Chelsea to negotiate with interested parties.” Kolar added: “Petr has confirmed his interest to play regularly at a top club. That’s the task that we are now working on, but other than that there has not been any other change in terms of Petr Cech’s employment and the transfer period only begins on 1 July.” When asked about the agent’s comments, Chelsea stated that they do not comment on transfer speculation. Blues manager Jose Mourinho said last week  that he wanted the keeper to remain at Stamford Bridge. “Without Petr this season, I don’t think the club would be champions because he played six important matches in the Premier League and without these points we probably wouldn’t be champions,” said the Portuguese. “So for me, decision number one: Petr will stay. After that, second point to go but not in England. The option I don’t want is for him to go to an English club.” The Czech Republic international has won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League title during his 11 years with the Blues.
