Chelsea transfer news: Miranda move off, Real eye up Cech

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

TalkSPORT claims Real Madrid are considering a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Cech has seen his place in the Blues first team come under threat following the return of Thibaut Courtois.

One of Diego Lopez or Iker Casillas has been tipped to leave Real Madrid this summer.

Atletico Madrid centre-back Joao Miranda will reportedly reject a move away from the Spanish club.

The Brazilian had been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea one of the clubs thought to be interested in making a move.

However, Marca claims Miranda will stay put at Atletico ahead of their La Liga defence.

Jose Mourinho believes the arrival of Cesc Fabregas is the missing piece of the puzzle at Chelsea.

The Spaniard signed in a £27 million deal from Barcelona earlier in the summer, before the World Cup.

“The missing piece of our engine. We are so happy. He has a football brain we need in our team. So our club have done very well. All the players have a fantastic feeling around Cesc,” said Mourinho.
