Petr Cech wants more big names at Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has welcomed the club being linked with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney and wants more star names to join.

The Czech Republic international is desperate to challenge for the Premier League title once again this season and insisted the Blues needed to sign the best possible players to make it happen.

Jose Mourinho confirmed this week that Chelsea had made a bid for Rooney and Cech believes the England international would be a perfect addition to the squad.

“Wayne Rooney is a great player but, at the moment, he's a Manchester United player," he is quoted as saying in the Guardian.

"We'll see what's going to happen. He's a great player. Let's see.

“You always want to have the biggest and strongest squad so you can challenge for titles.”

Chelsea have already added exciting young Germany international Andre Schürrle to their ranks this summer, following an £18million switch from Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Dutch wonderkid Marco van Ginkel and veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

The Australian will serve as Cech’s understudy and the Stamford Bridge number one is pleased with the recruitment so far and believes they have a strong squad, but won’t rule out more coming in.

“We already have a few more players in and a great squad,” he added.

“[But] In football things are changing every day with every squad. As time goes on, every team can make some changes. Anything can happen.”
