The 36-year-old veteran won four Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time at Stamford Bridge and is generally considered to be a club legend amongst the Blues faithful.
Cech left for London rivals Arsenal in 2015 on good terms with the Chelsea support, following the arrival of Thibaut Courtois, but could be re-signed with Belgium international Courtois reportedly in the sights of Real Madrid.
That would mean Chelsea will need a new shot-stopper, and with Roma’s Brazilian international seemingly set for a big-money move to Liverpool, it leaves potential replacements pretty thin on the ground.
Cech, however, looks like he could be surplus to requirements at Arsenal after the Gunners signed German keeper Bernd Leno last month, and a fairly straightforward deal looks like it could be worked out – and Sky Sports reckon it’s under serious consideration.
But whilst there’s some supporters who’d love to see Cech back between the sticks for Chelsea, there’s others who reckon his time as an elite goalie might’ve come and gone:
Cech was getting past it when we sold him, can't be having him back now , either we replace Tibo with Allison/oblak or keep him that's the only solution imo

Last time I had an emotional attachment to a keeper was Cech. Man literally almost broke his head for the club 😍😍

Cech? Lmaooo, give me a keeper from the youth team instead.

We need to see Giroud and Cech returned to their rightful clubs like an exchange of captured spies in the Cold War.

Getting Petr Cech back as backup keeper would be awesome. Can become GK coach when he retires.
No coincidence it's the same summer as Courtois leaves.
If Zola and Ballack come back, it's like old times again. Getting our Chelsea back.

Bring back Petr Cech, at least someone who loves the club

Cech back as our backup/3rd keeper? I’m all up for it. Cech back as our starting keeper? I’m supporting Sunderland

Petr Čech will always be welcome here at Chelsea Football Club, but re-signing him would be veeeeeeeeeeeeery bad.

Cech is a snake who sold out Chelsea for a couple Community Shields the poppadom handed wanker. No thanks. Thank god it’s bullshit.

Why would Chelsea resign Cech again? People are moving on with FIRST Class Goalkeepers and my club is thinking of going back to 3rd Class Goal Keeper. WHY? WHY?

Chelsea really like playing with my feelings. After seeing Cech links to replace Courtois I suddenly desperately want Allison and will go all out 70m for him. Lmao.

What do you think of the transfer merry-go-round?
