It Seems Jose Mourinho Is Letting Petr Cech Join A Premier League Rival

Arsenal are set to do some quality business in the transfer market this week with reports suggesting they are the on verge of a significant upgrade in the goalkeeping department.

It's being widely reported that Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will be heading to the Emirates within the next week for a fee in the region of £7 million plus add ons which could take it as high as £10 million. That fee, for a 33 year old second choice goalkeeper, would usually be considered farcical. However, in this case, it looks like Arsenal are doing a very impressive bit of business.


If Thibaut Courtois hadn't come along, Cech could easily be Chelsea's number 1 for years to come. However, once the Belgian did arrive, Mourinho had a decision to make and, understandably, he went with the long term potential of Courtois.

The Chelsea manager may have been happier to see Cech go abroad but, with reports that he wanted to stay in London, it seems Mourinho has given in and Cech will be heading to the grateful arms of Arsene Wenger.

With Cech's arrival, there's bound to be departures at the Emirates and it's looks like the first one out the door will be Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina who's set for £4 million move to Fenerbahce. Cech in for £7 million and Ospina out for £4 million, not a bad bit of business to kick of the transfer season at Arsenal.
