Petr Cech insists he has not thought about his future at Chelsea and will let the club decide what the next step in his career is.

The Czech stopper has been ousted as number one by Thibaut Courtois and has been linked with various clubs including Real Madrid. It was suggested that he could force his way out in the January window having opted to stay put over the summer.

However the 32-year-old insists the decision lies solely with the Blues, and given Jose Mourinho's public insistence over the summer that he wants Cech to stay, it looks like he'll be at Stamford Bridge for some time yet.

"Regarding my future at Chelsea, it depends entirely on the club," he told CTK. Everyone is asking me what if and what will happen. As a player, who has two years left on his contract, I cannot make the choice.

“It is simple. If the club says, ‘You are staying here’, then I will be staying. That’s why I’m staying. I can only leave if the club lets me go. And that is not the case.

“As a player with a two-year contract, I have absolutely no chance of influencing the wishes of the club. I am doing my best to change the situation. I want to play as often as possible and be prepared to be as good as possible for the fixtures what will come in the new year. To try and perform at my best is the only thing I can do.”

Schurrle happy to remain with Chelsea

Another player linked with the exit at Chelsea is Andre Schurrle. It’s been suggested that the German could be used in a swap deal for Marco Reus, but he’s taken to Instagram to insist he’s happy at Stamford Bridge.

Worryingly for the German international he was left out of Chelsea's squad entirely for their recent win over Liverpool.

Blues in the black

Chelsea are set to announce that they made profits of around £20 million and generated revenue of £320 million when they announce their annual financial results.

It’s only the second time in the Roman Abarmaovich era that the Blues have turned a profit having racked up losses of £600 million over the last ten years. The turnaround is being credited to player sales and increased commercial revenue.
