Cech to meet Chelsea officials to discuss Stamford Bridge exit

Goalkeeper Petr Cech will meet with Chelsea officials today to discuss his desire to leave the club.

Cech would like to join Arsenal, but the Premier League champions are reluctant to let him move there unless they receive a home-grown player as part of the deal. 

PSG are also interested and Chelsea would prefer to sell to the French champions for a fee of around £11million ($17m). Cech, who has been at Chelsea for 11 seasons and has a year left on his contract, would rather remain in London, where his family is settled.

Cech spent last season as second choice to Thibaut Courtois, the first time he has not been No 1 at Stamford Bridge since he joined in 2004.

The four-time Premier League winner, who has made over 500 appearances for Chelsea, began his career at Chmel Bisany and then Sparta Prague in his home country before a two-year spell with Rennes.
