Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech says he is yet to decide his future at Stamford Bridge but insisted he doesn't "want to lose time on the bench" amid speculation of a summer move to either Arsenal or Liverpool.
The 32-year-old lost the number one role to Thibaut Courtois this season after the Belgium international returned to the club in the summer of 2014 following his successful loan deal at Atletico Madrid.
Having only started five Premier League games during the whole campaign, the veteran keeper said in March that he will not accept being Courtois's understudy in the next campaign.
And with Arsenal, Liverpool and Paris-Saint Germain reportedly monitoring the situation, Cech has suggested once again that he will leave Stamford Bridge – unless Mourinho gives him back the number one role.
"I feel that every game I played, I played on the level I was required to be, so it was very positive for me and it gave me the reassurance that I'm ready to play and I want to play," he told the Sydney Morning Herald.
"So let's see what's going to happen at the end of the season.
"I have no plans yet and as soon as the season is over, I'll look to the future and just see what I want to decide. I feel that I'm fit and ready to play and I don't want to lose time on the bench."
The veteran keeper was a crucial asset for Mourinho during his first spell at West London but has seen his time restricted during the current campaign.
Speaking about how he has dealt with the situation, he added: "It was a very different season to before and I had a completely different role to what I used to have and I had to find a way to get through the year.
Even though Arsene Wenger has claimed he is not interested in signing a keeper, a number of pundits including Thierry Henry have urged the French boss to secure the services of a world class number one.
Cech's agent, Viktor Kolar, earlier in the season admitted the Chelsea keeper would not have any problems considering an offer from the Gunners and hinted that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers may also be interested in the stopper.
