I will talk to Real Madrid & Barcelona if Chelsea don't want Cech, claims agent

Real Madrid and Barcelona would
jump at the chance to sign Petr
Cech should he be rendered surplus
to requirements at Chelsea ,
according to the player’s agent.
Goal reported earlier this month
that Chelsea are prepared to listen
to offers for their long-serving No.1 ,
with Thibaut Courtois set to end his
three-year loan spell at Atletico
Madrid and return to Stamford
Bridge as Jose Mourinho’s first
choice goalkeeper.
Cech’s representative Viktor Kolar
revealed Paris Saint-Germain and
Monaco are among the elite
European clubs to have already
expressed an interest in Cech’s
services but believes they would
have to compete with the Spanish
giants if he were to be made
available for transfer.
He said: “I would get in touch with
Zubizaretta at Barcelona [if Petr is
not wanted at Chelsea] and people
at Real Madrid. These are clubs we
would consider if Chelsea wanted to
get rid of Petr.
“We would also consider Bayern but
they have Neuer there. Then there
are leagues Petr would not go to.
Serie A for instance, because clubs
in that league have problems.
“Paris Saint-Germain have shown
interest and we have also
communicated with Monaco.”
Cech, 32, signed for Chelsea a
decade ago and has made 478
appearances for the club, winning a
total of 11 major honours. Kolar
insists Cech’s preference would be
to remain at Chelsea and although
he has been given no concrete
indication that his future lies
elsewhere he admitted only a
handful of clubs would be able to
afford his services.
“He has two years left on his
Chelsea contract and has an interest
to continue there. Mourinho did not
tell him that he would not count on
him anymore," Kolar said.
“Petr isn't 20 anymore. His family
are satisfied living in London. His
wife is leading zumba classes there
and his children attend schools.
Moreover, Petr is satisfied at Chelsea
and there is interest in his services
even after his active football career.
They would want him to continue in
some position at the club.
“We have not been giving away
signals that Petr would be available.
If that was the case, though, you
have to realise that Petr is one of
the world's top goalkeepers and has
a certain salary.
“There are not many clubs who
could afford to sign him. If he were
to leave, we're discussing two or
three clubs in the world. The
situation has developed in a way, of
course, but for now he is staying at
