It was going to happen, everything pointed to this day. As a Chelsea fan, as a Cech fan, I’m not happy he won’t be at Chelsea again, but I’m glad he’ll get first team football.
The arrival of Courtois at Chelsea saw Cech join the bench. In search of first team football he asked to leave, Mourinho won’t allow him join any rival, but it seems he lost this one as reports suggest that Petr Cech has signed for the gunners.
The 33-year-old completed his medical on Friday and has now signed a £100,000-a-week contract, his transfer fee is undisclosed, but suspected to be £11 million.
This can be Wenger’s first win over Mourinho.
Mourinho was keen to retain Cech as backup to Thibaut Courtois, but owner Roman Abramovich wanted to show respect for the Czech’s 11 years of distinguished service so ceded to his wishes for first-team football as well as his desire to keep his young family in London.
