Arsenal and Liverpool target allowed to leave by Blues boss

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is allowing Petr Cech to leave the club amid interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, and AS Roma, Daily Star reports.

Cech has been manning the Blues posts for the last 10 seasons, however the return of Thibaut Courtois from Atletico Madrid has pushed the veteran down the pecking order.

Now the 32-year-old is being heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, with several of Europe’s top clubs interested in his services.

However Mourinho prefers that Cech stays with Chelsea at least till the end of the campaign, especially after the sale of third-choice stopper Mark Schwarzer to Leicester City.

But once the seasons draws to a close, Cech will be free to leave so the Blues boss can be given more time to find an adequate replacement.

It has also been claimed that the former Real Madrid manager will not block a move for Cech to a rival club, boosting Arsenal and Liverpool’s chances of signing the Czech Republic captain.
