Reports are out claiming that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has suggested clubs wanting to buy custodian Petr Cech this summer may have to give up one of their own players for a deal.
The 33-year-old has one year remaining on his contract and is reportedly attracting interest from a number of clubs including Arsenal.
“Every club that is interested in Petr, I can find a player that I like in that team too,” said Mourinho, speaking at the launch of BT Sport’s European football coverage.
“My answer is not important. My answer is not important because the owner is the owner, he is the person with the perspective I admire a lot, respect a lot.
“He respects a lot of people who do important things for him.
“Since 2004 to 2014-15, 10 years of success with the club, 10 years of unbelievable behaviour. I will have to accept any decision that the owner has.
“I’m different. I have the same respect for Petr that everybody at the club has, but my answer would be, no way. If the answer is different I will accept that.”
