Chelsea to offer Petr Cech vice captaincy in bid to keep him?

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly offer the vice captaincy to goalkeeper Petr Cech in a bid to keep him next season following the return of Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning to offer goalkeeper Petr Cech the vice captaincy role at Stamford Bridge with the hope of keeping the shot-stopper at the club.

The 32-year-old has attracted interest from Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain following reports that Thibaut Courtois will take up the number one role at Chelsea next season.

The Belgium international has emerged as one of the most talented keepers in world football after spending three loan campaigns at Atletico Madrid, who went on to be crowned La Liga champions last season.

Amid doubt over Cech's Chelsea future, manager Mourinho is expected to offer the goalkeeper the vice captaincy following the departure of Frank Lampard, according to The Times.

Reports have claimed that Cech, who is heading into his 10th season with the Blues, wants assurances that he will be able to fight for his place once Courtois returns.
