Chelsea morning news: Cech out for ten weeks, Blues swaying towards Khedira deal

Petr Cech At Stamford Bridge

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is out of action for ten weeks following surgery on a shoulder injury.

The Czech international hurt his shoulder when he fell heavily during the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid.

The ‘keeper could miss the start of pre-season but is expected to be fit for the new campaign at the end of the summer.

The Express is the latest to report Chelsea’s apparent interest in signing German midfielder Sami Khedira from Real Madrid.

Khedira has been injured recently and the rumours coincide with his expected return to the Real Madrid team against Celta Vigo this weekend.

Jose Mourinho already has a relationship with the versatile midfielder from his time in charge of Los Blancos.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is confident that striker Romelu Lukaku will decide his future after the World Cup.

The forward has been in good form for Everton this season on loan from Chelsea and Martinez has been tipped to urge the Toffees to make a bid for him.

“It's going to take a bit of time and I don't think Romelu's situation is going to be resolved before the World Cup, in truth,” said the Spaniard.
