Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Cech is admitted that he would be delighted Wayne Rooney moves to Chelsea this summer.
The 27-year-old’s future at Old Trafford is unsure after former boss Sir Alex Ferguson claimed the striker had asked to leave the Premier League champion in the closing stages of last season.
Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain had showed interest in Rooney but Cech is hoping the England international moves to Stanford Bridge should he opt for a change of scenery.
“I could see him in a Chelsea shirt,” the Czech Republic international told Sky Sports. “Players can change shirts and obviously he had a fantastic career with Manchester United and sometimes players need new challenges. Sometimes the consequences are the way that you are looking for the new challenge and change of the shirt.
“So if that happened, obviously he is a fantastic player and he will be welcome to our squad, but now we are only in the moment of speculation about it so we will see what this week will bring. He’s a great player and you always want to see great players in your team.”
Chelsea has also been heavily linked with Napoli’s forward Edinson Cavani, although Cech admits he wouldn’t try to influence Mourinho into signing the Uruguay star or any other player.
“I could see anybody in a Chelsea shirt, it depends if Jose Mourinho wants to see those players in the Chelsea shirt,” he added.
