Report: Petr Cech to meet Chelsea hierarchy to discuss transfer

Petr Cech

Petr Cech will reportedly consider exit options this week as Arsenal and Manchester United show interest in the goalkeeper.

According to Get West London, Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will meet with club officials this week to discuss his Stamford Bridge exit.

Cech is considering leaving the Blues after falling behind Thibaut Courtois in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order in west London.

A goalkeeper of the Czech Republic international's standard deserves to be showcasing his heroics regularly and he faces the prospect of another season warming the bench.

The 33-year-old hung his gloves up for the season after playing in the Czech Republic's 2-1 defeat in their Euro 2016 Qualifier against Iceland on Friday.

Cech has previously said he would not think about his future until after that game, but he is now free to consider his options having concluded the 2014-15 campaign.

Now with the transfer window open Cech has a big decision to make. He is considered a legend at Stamford Bridge but has received interest from rivals Arsenal, as per Sky Sports, and Manchester United, as per ESPN.

Arsene Wenger already has two first-team goalkeepers on his books in Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina but the arrival of Cech would surely put both their futures in doubt.

There has also been reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain, as per Bleacher Report, but that would involve moving country which could also be considered more hassle than it's worth.
