Petr Cech will be ready to leave his Chelsea career behind him, in search for first team football, should he be replaced by Thibaut Courtois this season, according to former Blues stopper Mark Bosnich.
Cech, 32, has been one of Chelsea's key players since signing for the London club for a reported £7million in 2004. But the 'keepers position at the club has come under fire due to Thibaut Courtois returning from his loan spell at Atletico Madrid.
Courtois enjoyed two successful seasons at the Spanish club, winning the 2012-13, and 2013-14 Ricardo Zamora trophy.
Former Chelsea stopper Mark Bosnich has had his say regarding the issue: and as relayed by the Daily Star, said: "Petr Cech has been fantastic in the ten years he's been at Chelsea," Bosnich said.
"It's very difficult, for a man of his age, not to be playing though.
"Courtois is probably the best young goalkeeper in the world at the moment.
"Cech is 32 years of age, he won't be happy just being sat on the bench. He'll have to leave."
Viktor Kolar, the agent of Petr Cech, stated that he has already held talks regarding the goalkeepers availability with high spending French clubs Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.
Kolar also said that if Cech were to receive the news that Courtois was number one at Chelsea, then his client would move on to another club.
Mourinho has spoken out on the goalkeeping situation at Chelsea in recent times. He said: "Before I had Carlo Cudicini and then I made the decision to give Petr the goal so, if I have to make the decision of putting Petr on the bench, it’s not a problem for me.
"If I have to put Courtois on the bench, it is not a problem. The fact that we have two fantastic goalkeepers is not a problem for me. It was logical that Courtois had to be back.
"It would make no sense to have such a great young keeper and not have him back. In the end it will be my decision and nobody else’s.
"They have to work hard and wait for my decision, then fight against my decision if they are on the bench."
