Spurs stopper on Mourinho’s radar.
Chelsea are reportedly lining up a move for veteran goalkeeper Brad Friedel as a replacement for Petr Cech, who could be on his way out of the club this summer, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Long serving custodian Cech is said to be unhappy about suddenly being relegated to the bench this season, and the Blues are fully preparing for him to depart at the end of the current campaign.
Arsenal, Roma, Liverpool, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain are all thought to be monitoring Cech’s situation, but that means that Chelsea will need to start their search for a replacement.
And that has apparently lead them to the 43-year-old Friedel, which would indeed be a strange move considering they allowed fellow veteran Mark Schwarzer to join Leicester City earlier this year.
Another name apparently on the club’s shortlist is QPR’s Rob Green.
However, the club could also decide to promote youth team stopper Jamal Blackburn to the bench rather than splashing out on one of the division’s true ‘golden oldies’.
