Arsenal were given a free run to buy Chelsea’s Petr Cech three years ago, when Jose Mourinho brought Thibault Courtois back from his loan at Atletico Madrid. Now it seems that the Blues are going to do the same thing in reverse now the Gunners have brought in Bernd Leno!
This is how the Mirror reported the rumour this morning….
Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech could make a sensational return to Chelsea should Thibaut Courtois depart the club.
The Czech international left Stamford Bridge for the Emirates Stadium in 2015, a year after Courtois was recalled from his loan at Atletico Madrid.
But with the Belgian now set for a move to Atletico’s city rivals Real Madrid, Sky Sports report that Cech has been lined up for a sensational and emotional comeback.
The 36-year-old won four Premier League titles in west London after signing for the Blues in 2004.
But after letting Cech go because he wasn’t as good as the much younger Belgian, why would they now want to bring him back as a 36 year-old, whose stats have deteriorated badly in the last couple of years?
It makes no sense to me…
