Barcelona are eyeing Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech as Victor Valdes' replacement. Valdes will leave Barca when his contract expires next summer and Barca are busily seeking a readymade replacement.

El Mundo Deportivo says Cech is under consideration as word reaches the Nou Camp that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is weighing up replacing the Czech Republic No1.

Barca coaching staff have already discussed Cech's strengths and qualities and believe he would be an ideal successor for Valdes, who, ironically, is interesting Mourinho for next season.
