Chelsea have no plans to hold contract talks with Petr Cech

Chelsea are currently moving full steam ahead with plans to tie Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois down to new lucrative, long-term contracts, but Petr Cech is out in the cold and Blues chiefs have no plans to even discuss fresh terms with one of Stamford Bridge's most popular figures.

Cech has less than two years to run on his current and under normal circumstances would be high on the list of names talking terms over a contract extension in West London, but Courtois has changed all that.

The imperious young Belgian stopper has been ever-present for Chelsea so far this season and as a result Cech will not be offered a new deal unless the situation changes, according to The Telegraph.

Will January spell the end for Cech at Chelsea?

Chelsea's stance is perfectly understandable but will do little to dampen increasing speculation that Cech will be forced to end a decade of dominance in the Premier League for regular first-team football elsewhere.

The 32-year-old has played 470 times for Chelsea and rarely put a foot wrong, although that ultimately counts for nothing at the present moment thanks to Courtois emerging as arguably the world's most in-form goalkeeper.

Paris Saint-Germain and even Real Madrid are still thought to monitoring Cech's situation closely and a reported salary of £90,000-a-week is a hell of a lot to pay for a perennial substitute, so expect speculation to be rife unless the Czech stopper can wrestle back his number one stopper.

Champions League snub imminent

Courtois is expected to keep his place once again tomorrow night, when Chelsea begin their Champions League campaign against familiar European foes in Schalke 04.

That call from Mourinho would dispel any notion of Cech returning to the starting XI for cup competitions, a tactic employed by Real Madrid to use both Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas last season.

Chelsea are currently focused on rewarding players that will stick around for the long-term and deliver trophies every season, with Hazard and Courtois due new salaries of £200,000-a-week and £90,000-a-week respectively.
