Chelsea's Cech would 'consider' Barcelona move
Chelsea keeper Petr Cech maintains he is 'in love with the Premier League', but admits he would consider a move to Barcelona if the offer ever came his way.
The 25-year-old is currently sidelined with a calf muscle strain, but is expected to return to action following the international break.
Cech, who kept five successive clean sheets before his recent injury, is considered one of the best keepers around, having joined Chelsea from Rennes in a £7million deal during the summer of 2004.
The Czech international is 'very happy' with the way things have gone at Stamford Bridge, helping the club win back-to-back Premier League titles and also the FA Cup last season.
However, the goalkeeper revealed any approach from a side such as Spanish giants Barcelona in the future would be 'worth considering'.
Taking part in an on-line Q&A for Czech website fotbal.idnes.cz, Cech said: 'So far I have been very happy at Chelsea and I have started to love the Premier League.
'In the case of Barcelona showing interest, yes, certainly it would be worth considering.'
Cech continued: 'In London I miss only my friends from the Czech Republic, otherwise I have got used to the way of life and my wife and I like it.
'Can I imagine to staying in England? That I cannot [give an] answer to.'
Following an indifferent start to the campaign and the high-profile departure of manager Jose Mourinho, Chelsea have picked up in recent weeks under new boss Avram Grant.
Cech, though, reflected: 'It is hard to judge that [Grant's impact] after such a short period. Jose Mourinho's departure was very emotional for some players.'
Following a 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions, the Blues have moved up to fourth in the Premier League table and also look on course to reach the last 16 of the Champions League.
Cech maintains Chelsea will be looking to keep up the pressure on leaders Arsenal, whom they play at Emirates Stadium on December 16.
'We will definitely be making their path more complicated,' he said.
'The most important period is going to be at Christmas again when a lot of matches are played and mostly this is when much will be decided or at least revealed.
'The title race is still open.'
