Cech insinuated that he may look to leave Chelsea if he continues to be the second-choice in goal behind Thibault Courtois, according to Sky Sports.

Courtois spent the last three season on loan to Atletico Madrid, but has been Chelsea's choice so far this season. Cech has only played twice this season, and he said there is no time for him to remain sitting on the sideline.

Cech came on in the 24th minute of Chelsea's Premier League match against Arsenal on Sunday after Thibaut Courtois was forced out after suffering a concussion.

Neither keeper recorded a save in the match, though Cech will be given the fantasy clean sheet in most leagues after playing more than 60 minutes. The severity of Courtois' concussion will be determined in the coming days, but if he is forced to miss any time, Cech will resume the starting duties he's held for the past decade.

Cech will remain a Chelsea player at least until January after the summer transfer window closed Monday evening, reports the Daily Mail.

Queens Park Rangers was one club the keeper was offered to, but it is understood that the veteran was more interested in a club based in London. He will remain at Chelsea for his 11th season with the team.

Cech is seeking assurance regarding his future with Chelsea after losing his starting role to Thibaut Courtois against Burnley on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

Cech has a number of suitors, including Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, as he tries to determine how much action he will see with the return of Courtois.

Cech is available off the bench for Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday, but he will likely not play with Thibaut Courtois getting the start.

The goalkeeper battle is a tough one for manager Jose Mourinho, who seemed to give himself a small out by saying his World Cup players may not feature Monday. However, he threw caution to the wind and is starting Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle, Oscar and Courtois, who appears close to clinching the job over Cech, who could be seeing his long and storied career at Stamford Bridge coming to an end.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has yet to decide with Cech or Thibaut Courtois will be the starting goalkeeper this season, the Independent reports.

Cech appears to be fully recovered from the separated shoulder he suffered during the semifinal of the Champions League last season, but the decision to not loan Courtois back out to Atletico Madrid has caused uncertainty at Stamford Bridge. Either choice is an excellent one for fantasy owners, and Mourinho will use the remaining four preseason matches to determine his starter.

Cech returned to full training Monday, three weeks ahead of his 10-week schedule, the Telegraph reports.

Cech's immediate future at Chelsea is a bit cloudy, as the club has decided to keep Thibaut Courtois this season instead of sending him back on loan. As good as Cech is, Courtois is already one of the best keepers in the world and manager Jose Mourinho won't keep him around to keep the bench warm.

Cech underwent successful surgery on his shoulder Wednesday and he will be out for the next eight to 10 weeks, The Guardian reports.

Cech suffered a separated shoulder in the first leg of Chelsea's Champions League semifinal tie with Atletico Madrid, and he has been replaced by Mark Schwarzer since then. The Czech Republic did not qualify for this year's World Cup, so Cech will have all summer to rehab.
