Petr Cech insists he won’t be leaving Chelsea this summer despite his rivalry with Thiabut Courtois.

Cech’s status as Chelsea number one is under threat after Courtois returned to the Blues following three successive seasons on loan at La Liga champions Atletico Madrid.

You always have to fight if you want to be on great level

The Czech Republic international has been linked with a potential move to Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain amid the possibility of slipping down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

However, 32-year-old Cech, who joined Chelsea from Rennes in 2004, ruled out a move away from the west London side in the summer transfer window.

“I’m staying at Chelsea, that for sure,” Cech told Ekipa24. “I really don’t mind that there are two great keepers at Chelsea. That motivates me ever more.

“You always have to fight if you want to be on great level. And there is not only Courtois and me, even Matej Delac is showing that he is great keeper.”

Cech has made 470 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions since moving to the Blues, winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League.
