Goalkeeper Petr Cech could be a step closer to resolving his Chelsea future next week.

The Czech international shot-stopper will hold talks with the club, and is currently keeping “all options open”.

The 33-year-old has a year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and there has been a lot of talk that he could leave rather than play understudy to Thibaut Courtois.

But Blues boss Jose Mourinho is keen for his experienced goalie to remain at the club.

For his part, Cech is eager to resolve the issue sooner rather than later.

The keeper, who has been linked with various clubs, including Arsenal and Manchester United, said: "Next week we will have a meeting with Chelsea.

"At the moment it is with my agent. When it is clearer and all the cards are on the table, we will decide.

"I believe that for what I have done for the club and what the club has done for me, we can arrange it so we are all happy."

He added: "I keep all options open, regardless of the country. I will decide based on what is best for me and my family. It does not matter whether it is England, Germany, France or Spain.

"If I move, it brings difficulties. It must change everything, looking for housing, a school for children and so on.

"Therefore, the sooner I know what to do the better. I can plan everything and even rest before the new season."
