Petr Cech. This is the name of a player who has done so much with and for Chelsea. The Czcech has made over 320 league appearances with the Blue jersey and has lifted the Premier League title on 3 different occasions as well as also having the chance of winning the Champions League silverware.
These are just some of the accomplishments and milestones that Cech has made with Chelsea but it’s starting to look like it’s only a matter of time until the experienced goal-keeper decides to end his career with the Premier League club.
The return of the Belgian shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois has seen Petr Cech dropping from the main team to a spot in the sidelines of the team.
Courtois at the age of 22 is making a thunderous wave across Europe with sublime performances almost every week and every match he performs in.
It does not look like Petr Cech has any future at Stamford Bridge and now rumors are starting to flood the internet as to which club will be his next one with Real Madrid being a possible destination.
Carlo Ancelotti is well aware of everything that Petr Cech can add into any squad as the Italian manager worked alongside with Cech a few years ago when they trained alongside each other at Stamford Bridge in 2010.
Real Madrid is a possible club that Petr Cech could join if he continues his current situation in Chelsea where he has to play mostly as a back-up option. Cech has already revealed his displeasure being only a player that sits on the sidelines and he will move away from Stamford Bridge if things continue how they currently are.
32 years of age for a goal-keeper isn’t too high as players in this position of the pitch can usually continue performing at a high level even at this age. Petr Cech remains being one of the best goal-keepers in the world and if he indeed does wants to be transferred out from Chelsea; there will surely be a list of clubs interested in signing him.

Former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has played down talk of a rift between him and his former manager Jose Mourinho. Chelsea decided not to extend the contract of Eto’o, who had initially joined the blues on a one-year contract last summer. As a free agent, Eto’o recently completed a move to Everton in order to team up with Romelu Lukaku, another player with Chelsea links. Both players could come up against their former club for the first time, as Chelsea visit Goodison Park. This has traditionally been a very difficult match for the blues, but Mourinho has been confident ahead of encounter.
Eto’o was one of the best strikers at Chelsea last season, as he overshadowed both Fernando Torres and Demba Ba in terms of goalscoring prowess. Despite being 33 years old, Eto’o managed to score 9 Premier league goals with most of them coming in the second half of the season. This return included goals-against the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United. It is widely considered that Eto’o was allowed to leave Chelsea due to his fallout with Mourinho, who questioned the striker’s age in a private interview that was later leaked. After having praised Mourinho a lot in recent years, Eto’o chose to stick with the same as he thanked the Portuguese for bringing him to the Premier League.
“I am not concerned about that aspect of it, that it is against my ex-team. The important thing is to integrate myself into my team-mates’ way of working and get myself ready during the training and preparation, potentially, for that match. The only thing I have to say vis-a-vis Jose Mourinho is to thank him. It is down to Jose Mourinho that I had the opportunity to be accepted and integrated into the Premier League, to play some great matches. That is the end of the discussion,” said Eto’o.

Brazilian midfield maestro Oscar has revealed that he was contacted by cash rich French giants Paris Saint Germain over a potential move across the Channel, but the Chelsea has said that he remains committed to the Blues for the near future and is not looking for a move away.
Chelsea might have struggled for goals from their strikers as they ended up being trophy less last season but that hasn’t stopped the European heavyweights to poach some of their brilliant attacking players with the likes of Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard and Oscar all attracting interest from the continental giants.
Hazard is a transfer target for both Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona but he has also insisted that his heart remains with the Stamford Bridge club.
Oscar, who is currently playing for Brazil at the World Cup on home soul has said that there has been contact with Paris Saint Germain but it didn’t go any further and went on to add that he will remain a Chelsea in the new season.
There have been claims that with the club already signing Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, either one of Hazard or Oscar could be sacrificed as the club looks to remain within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules but there have also been claims that there is no way Jose Mourinho will part with a player who many see as a future legend for the club, especially after the January sale of Juan Mata to Manchester United.
Oscar was signed by in 2012 by then boss Roberto Di Matteo for a fee of £ 20 million from Brazilian giants Internacional and has gone on to cement his place at Chelsea as one of their key players despite the frequent change of managers and he is hoping he spends many more years at the club as well.
