Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has hinted that he would prefer to remain in England next season as he nears the end of his Stamford Bridge career.
The Czech Republic stopper, who is with the national team preparing for their Euro 2016 qualifier against Iceland, has revealed that he will hold talks with Chelsea next week and is hoping to resolve his future sooner rather than later.
The former Rennes 'keeper has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, as Manchester United are also said to be interested as they look for a replacement for David de Gea, who is reportedly closing in on a move to Real Madrid.
Apart from the English clubs, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are also aiming for the Czech international's signature. Cech has indicated that he is also open to the ideal of moving abroad if it is convenient for his family.
However, he understands that a move away from London, will give him less time to rest before the start of next season, as he has to look for a new school for his children and a new home for himself giving the Gunners a boost in their pursuit of the 'keeper.
"First I have to agree with the club what the conditions would be for leaving," Cech said, as quoted by Goal.
"Next week we will have a meeting with Chelsea. At the moment it is with my agent. When it is clearer and all the cards are on the table, we will decide."
"I believe that for what I have done for the club and what the club has done for me, we can arrange it so we are all happy," the Blues stopper added.
"I keep all options open, regardless of the country. I will decide based on what is best for me and my family. It does not matter whether it is England, Germany, France or Spain."
"If I move, it brings difficulties. It must change everything, looking for housing, a school for children and so on. Therefore, the sooner I know what to do the better. I can plan everything and even rest before the new season," Cech concluded.
