Former Chelsea coach and player Ray Wilkins has claimed goalkeeper Petr Cech will leave Stamford Bridge in the summer to join Paris Saint-Germain even though Liverpool, Arsenal and Real Madrid are also reportedly interested in securing his services.
Having lost the number one role to Thibaut Courtois after the Belgium international returned to the west London club in the summer of 2014, following his loan deal at Atletico Madrid, Cech has been linked with a number of teams.
The 32-year-old 'keeper rejected leaving Chelsea during the January transfer window but his agent, Viktor Kolar, then admitted he could make a different decision in the summer.
Kolar also claimed he would consider an offer from Chelsea rivals Arsenal and hinted Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who is looking for a 'keeper to challenge Simon Mignolet, may also be interested in securing his services.
"I think Arsenal should have made an offer to him. I think Petr would be considering it. Liverpool? They need to strengthen the position in goal. And they know Petr will be available in the summer," the agent said in December 2014.
During the latest international break, Cech suggested to local media that he could move elsewhere by claiming he will not accept being the understudy for another season.
"I don't know what the club's idea will be. It looks like it works well with me and Thibaut as a duo this season. But that can work for one season only. I don't want another one like this," Cech said to ISport. "We'll see what comes in the summer. But as I have said throughout this season. It is clear that I want to play more."
And Wilkins, speaking on beIN Sport after PSG lost 3-1 to Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, claims the 'keeper has decided to join the Ligue 1 side rather than continue his career in the Premier League.
If Wilkins's comments are true, Cech will follow in the footsteps of David Luiz after the Brazil international made the same trip during the 2014 summer transfer window, when PSG paid around £50m ($75m) to Chelsea to secure his services.
