French giants to save Chelsea outcast

Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer Petr Cech a Chelsea escape route after he was dropped in favour of Thibaut Courtois, according to reports from Goal.

The Czech Republic international appears to have lost his spot as the Blues’ No. 1 following the return of his Belgian counterpart, with Jose Mourinho having elected to field the latter in the Londoners’ season opening win against Burnley on Monday night.

Although ‘The Special One’ has suggested that he wants both stoppers to stay and battle it out for a starting berth, a number of top sides are rumoured to be looking at the 32-year-old glovesman, who is thought to be against the idea of warming the bench at Stamford Bridge.

PSG are reportedly at the front of the queue after hearing whispers that Chelsea may actually opt to sell.

Salvatore Sirigu is currently the Parisians’ ‘keeper of choice, but word coming from the French capital suggests that Cech is seen as a major upgrade on the Italian.

Monaco and Real Madrid are also keen, but with the signings of Maarten Stekelenburg and Keylor Navas respectively, they would appear to not have the room for the Chelsea ace.

Cech has been the current Premier League leaders’ first choice in goal for the best part of 10 years, and is considered to be a fans’ favourite among at the club.

Talk of his exit has been further intensified by rumours regarding a new £90,000-per-week five-year contract for Courtois.
