Cech to remain Chelsea No1 next season

Petr Cech is set to remain as Chelsea No1 next season.

The Mail on Sunday says Cech is expected to remain Chelsea's first-choice goalkeeper next season, with Thibaut Courtois due to be installed as his successor from next summer.

According to club insiders, Cech will be given the nod for one more year but 22-year-old Courtois, who has developed into one of the world's best keepers while on loan at Atletico Madrid, will be offered a lucrative long-term contract over the summer - and the promise of the No 1 shirt from 2015-16.

The future of back-up keeper Mark Schwarzer, 41, is also unclear. His one-year deal at Chelsea has ended and an extension has yet to be agreed.
