Mourinho has revealed that the club would have to grant the Czech Republic international a move away from Stamford Bridge if it was his intention to find first-team football elsewhere.
"I think if that moment came the hierarchy in my club, the owner and the board – I come after them – Petr deserves to sit with him and to listen to him," he said.
"He deserves everything from this club. But this moment hasn’t arrived yet."
