Monaco are lining up a £10m move for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech after Thibaut Courtois displaced him as Jose Mourinho's number one choice.
Cech was left on the substitutes' bench in Chelsea's opening Premier League match against Burnley after Mourinho opted for youth ahead of experience.
The 32-year-old has been a constant between the sticks at Stamford Bridge since joining the club in 2004 and holds the club record for the most clean sheets - 220 - in all competitions.
But Cech now faces a bleak future as a reserve to 22-year-old Courtois, who reportedly sought assurances from Mourinho he would be first-choice keeper at Stamford Bridge before returning from his loan at Atletico Madrid.
The Mirror reports cash-rich Monaco are looking to take advantage of the situation and have prepared a £10m bid to prise Cech away from the west London club with the lure of guaranteed first team football.
It is believed Cech does not want to leave Chelsea and was yesterday at the club's Cobham training facility for extra practice sessions as he tries to reclaim the number one spot for Saturday's league match against Leicester City.
Despite the rivalry between the goalkeepers, Courtois has said he wants Cech to stay at the club to help with his development.
'"In training I can still learn from him because he has a lot of experience,' Courtois told Chelsea's official website.
"He can give me some tips about the Premier League because there are some things I might not know.
"From the start he's been very nice to me, we are training well and he's proving he's a great goalkeeper."
Cech was signed by former Blues boss Claudio Ranieri for £7m from French club Rennes after an impressive Euro 2004.
He has won the league title three times, the FA Cup four times and in 2012 won the Champions League.
