Speaking to BBC Sport recently Vitor Kolar, Petr Cech’s agent, claimed that Chelsea gave them the permit to negotiate with other parties.
When asked about this situation in his press conference today, Chelsea manager José Mourinho replied:
“I don’t think if it’s absolutely true what Cech’s agent says, maybe the reality is a little different, but he still got a contract.
“I want the best players and the most important players in my squad. My position, my desire, is him to stay. I would like him to stay and I’m optimistic”.
The Portuguese coach then stressed on the fact he doesn’t want dramatic changes in his squad, stating he would like to keep all the current players, another message to Cech to stay:
“Last season I was for sure more keen in selling players, in this moment the base is to keep my squad.
The market is difficult but we are in a good situation. We don’t want dramatic changes but stability in the squad. We believe in this team, we are stable and last season we got stability to analyse to improve the team. We want to keep the squad and improve the motivation. We will just bring a couple of extra players to improve the squad”
“We are not going to go in the market game, we know what we want, it’s not much”.
