Petr Cech could be sold by Chelsea this summer

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech could be sold by the club this summer if he isn't prepared to become Thibaut Courtois' understudy at Stamford Bridge, according to The Telegraph

If reports are to be believed, Jose Mourinho will make Courtois, who is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid, his No.1 choice between the sticks next season. The Belgian youngster has had a fine season in Spain and has played a key role in his side's hunt for a La Liga and Champions League double. 

This could lead to Blues veteran Cech - who has been the No.1 at the Bridge for a decade - being sold by the club in the up coming market, with the Mourinho rating him at around £10 million. With Cech earning as much as £100,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge, the club could be ready to save on his high wages.

Mourinho will, however, look to sign a back-up for Courtois if Cech is sold, as the Blues target success in the 2014/15 campaign. Cech has enjoyed a fine career at Chelsea, but it appears that the rise of Courtois could spell the end of his career as the club's No.1. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the 31-year-old does eventually depart the club, but if he stays then he will be in for a great battle for the No.1 jersey next season.
