Cech’s future at Chelsea could be cast into further doubt with rival keeper Thibaut Courtois set to be handed a new five-year deal.
Courtois made his competitive debut for Jose Mourinho’s side in yesterday’s impressive 3-1 win over Burnley, with the Belgian being given the nod over the Chelsea veteran.
And now his part in the Blues’ future is set to be cemented with a new five-year deal, which will see his weekly wage triple to £90,000, according to Goal.com.
Courtois has two years remaining on his current contract, which he signed when joining Chelsea in 2011.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are keeping close tabs on the situation, with the French duo both keen to make a move for Cech.
Mourinho believes the 32-year-old will stay and fight Courtois for his place between the sticks, but Chelsea are also unlikely to stand in the Czech’s way should he wish to secure guaranteed first-team football elsewhere before the end of the transfer window.
