first_img Petr Cech and Jose Mourinho Jose Mourinho claims he would love to keep Petr Cech at Chelsea – but admits he is powerless to stop the goalkeeper leaving the club this summer.The Czech shot stopper has been replaced by Thibaut Courtois as the Blues No.1 and has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal in the summer.Paris Saint-Germain are also monitoring developments at Stamford Bridge and Mourinho claims he would much prefer to sell the 32-year-old outside of the Premier League.When asked whether Cech will definitely leave in the summer, Mourinho said:  “I hope not.“My perfect scenario is that he stays with us. He belongs with this club, and this club belongs to his history and his life.“He’s a fantastic goalkeeper, a fantastic squad man in the dressing room. I tried to prove the respect I have for him my playing him in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup final.“I played him in the Champions League. I gave him matches in the Premier League.“I tried to make him feel important, as he is, but I can imagine at 32 or 33, he still feels young and has the passion and desire to play every game.“If it’s in my hands, he would never go. He would never go to big clubs and fantastic teams, big candidates who want to win the Premier League. I would never let him go, but it’s not in my hands.” 1last_img read more
