Petr Cech would like to move to Arsenal, Manchester United or PSG this summer, according to the goalkeeper's agent.

The Chelsea stopper is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer having lost his status as No 1 to Thibaut Courtois. With indications he will be available when the transfer window opens, numerous clubs have emerged as potential suitors, with Premier League pair Arsenal and Manchester United among them.

According to his agent Viktor Kolar, a switch to either of those clubs would appeal.

"Arsenal, United or PSG are all top clubs and Petr would like to join one of them - definitely," he told the London Evening Standard.

However, before either of those clubs get carried away at the prospect of signing the Czech Republic stopper, Kolar warned that Blues owner Roman Abramovich could influence Cech's destination.

"Petr expects that (owner) Roman Abramovich, not Mourinho, will decide about his future, based on their mutual agreement from last year."


Cech signed for Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 before playing a major role in winning every major club trophy.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expressed a reluctance for Cech to move to rivals and also said it would take "big" money to prise Cech away from Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea are understood to be prepared to take the player's wishes into consideration on deciding whether or not he can leave and his next destination.
