Chelsea want to sell Petr Cech to Paris Saint-Germain, and lure goalkeeper Diego Lopez to Stamford Bridge, according to reports in Spain.

Thibaut Courtois has returned from a three-year loan spell with Atletico Madrid, and looks set to end Cech's run as the Blues' undisputed number one. 


That of course has prompted speculation about Cech's future, and while he insists he won't leave Stamford Bridge this summer, with Mark Schwarzer being handed a contract extension, it looks feasible that the 32-year-old could well be sold.

 Opinion: Cech must force Real Madrid move

One thing that counts against the former Rennes man is that Chelsea are over their quota for maximum foreign players allowed for the new season, while Blues boss Jose Mourinho cast doubt over his future by admitting that he faces a 'fight' for first team action.


Now Spanish newspaper Marca claim that Mourinho and Chelsea have decided to move Cech on, and want to sell him to PSG in order to get Diego Lopez from Madrid.

Lopez was first choice for league games with Madrid last season, but with Keylor Navas arriving at the Bernabeu and Iker Casillas unlikely to be sold, the Spaniard may find himself down to third in the pecking order.


Instead, Marca say Chelsea will offer him the chance to be clear number two at Stamford Bridge, which would guarantee him some time on the pitch most likely in cup competitions.

If Chelsea are unable to sell Cech to PSG then he has attracted interest from Monaco as well as Napoli, so there may be an option to offload him to either one of those clubs.
