Former Chelsea ace Jason Cundy has revealed that he believes Jose Mourinho should cash in on Petr Cech by selling him to a struggling Arsenal side that are no longer a threat to their season, Daily Star reports.
With Thibaut Courtois now the first choice keeper at Stamford Bridge, the 32-year-old veteran is very unlikely to have a big role this season as he may need to search for regular football elsewhere.
Arsene Wenger is said to be readying an offer worth about £7million in order to acquire the services of the Czech Republic international as Cundy hinted that his departure won’t affect the Blues campaign.
He told IBTimes: “Of all Chelsea’s current squad, I’d suggest Petr Cech is the most likely to leave.
“Where could Cech go? Well Arsenal have been mentioned in some quarters, and I think that move makes a lot of sense.
“When Jose first joined Chelsea, back in 2004, he’d never have dreamed of selling a top player to Arsenal, because they were genuine rivals at the time.
“But nowadays – and I know I’m going to get pelters from Arsenal fans for saying this – the two clubs are at completely different levels.
“Arsenal aren’t competing with Chelsea any more. They live in the Premier League’s top four, but seem to have given up challenging for the title.
“Jose will know that, and he’ll also know he can get good money out of them for Cech.”
