Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech’s agent Viktor Kular has confirmed that his client will not be leaving the West London club in January despite being currently second-choice between the sticks to Thibaut Courtois, according to reports.
The 32-year-old was the first-choice shot-stopper at Stamford Bridge for 10 years following his move in 2004 from Rennes, and helped the club to a multitude of trophies, including three English Premier League titles, four English FA Cups, the UEFA Champions’ League and the UEFA Europa League.
However, the Czech Republic international lost his place to highly-rated Thibaut Courtois after the Belgium international returned after spending three years on loan with Atletico Madrid and helping them win the Spanish La Liga title in May. Since then, Cech has only featured sporadically, appearing most often in the English Capital One Cup.
As a result, there has been plenty of reported interest from across Europe, with Milan, Roma, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid all rumoured to be looking into making a bid for the Blues keeper, but his Kular insists that any move will not take place in the January transfer window.
“There has been no contact with AS Roma,” he said.
“Certainly Petr will not move during the transfer market in January.”
