Petr Cech is prepared to leave Chelsea after 11 years for a Premier League rival this summer, according to his agent.

After a decade as number one, Cech, who is 33 on Wednesday, has found himself second choice behind Thibaut Courtois this season.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are among the clubs - along with Paris St Germain and Real Madrid - reportedly monitoring his situation after Cech hinted at his wish to move on this summer, despite still having a year to run on his contract.

The Czech Republic goalkeeper's agent Viktor Kolar told the London Evening Standard: "Arsenal, United or PSG are all top clubs and Petr would like to join one of them - definitely.

"Petr expects that (owner) Roman Abramovich, not Mourinho, will decide about his future, based on their mutual agreement from last year."

Cech signed from Rennes in 2004 before playing a major role in winning every major club trophy.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expressed a reluctance for Cech to move to rivals and also said it would take "big" money to prise Cech away from Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea are understood to be prepared to take the player's wishes into consideration on deciding whether or not he can leave and his next destination.
