Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists he is open to keeping veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech to provide competition to Thiabut Courtois next season, according to the Sky Sports website.
Asked when the talks regarding the future of Cech – linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris St Germain, among others – would take place, Mourinho said:
“I hope never. But I don’t know. He was always there for me and for the team. He played lots of important matches for us.
“For me, no problem to have both. I can cope with it. But obviously I’m not in control of Petr’s decision. I have to wait.”
