Madrid have been heavily tipped to secure the signing of Manchester United shot stopper, David De Gea, but if the Spaniard snubs Los Blancos, Cech is willing to step in.

Jose Mourinho does not want to lose his number two, who has performed as good as ever in the games he has been called upon in the Premier League this season, with five clean sheets in six games.
Cech would be considerably cheaper than De Gea, with talk of any transfer for the Spaniard costing upward of £30 million.
Chelsea are keen for Cech to stay but have not ruled out his departure, although Mourinho doesn’t want him to move to any of their Premier League rivals.
Cech is rated at £10.5 million by transfermarkt.co.uk and Chelsea risk losing the Czech Republic international on a free next summer when his contract expires if they do not sell him in the coming months.
