12-09-2014

Petr Čech’s future with the London club Chelsea looks even more uncertain after the club revealed on Thursday it had signed a five-year contract with Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois. Courtois has taken over as the number 1 goalkeeper since the start of the new season. The deal has renewed speculation that Čech will head for a new club in January, when the next trade window opens. The 32-year old Čech has two years left on his existing contract. He was the club’s top goalie for 10 years, helping Chelsea win the 2012 Champions League.
