Ex-Chelsea boss Villas-Boas wanted Cech sold

Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas wanted to sell Petr Cech this summer, it has been revealed.

The Guardian says Villas-Boas had spoken with Roman Abramovich about selling the goalkeeper.

Rui Patrício, the Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper, was one possible replacement and Villas-Boas also wanted to bring back Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea's 19-year-old Belgian, from a loan spell at Atlético Madrid in which the teenager has excelled.
