It appeared to be an ever-running transfer story but it has come to end after Sky Sports have confirmed the news that Chelsea and Arsenal have agreed on a £10.9million transfer fee for Petr Cech.

Yesterday, entire British media went in to a frenzy reporting a confirmed deal for the player to join Arsenal, however those close to the clubs maintained a stance that a transfer fee was yet to be agreed.

Chelsea were adamant that they demand £11million for Petr Cech and as it appears they have got their wish. Reason for Cech to leave Chelsea have been grilled over and over again, so I would not bore you to death by telling the same thing again.

However, I can definitely bring to your knowledge that Per Cech will be playing his first official game in an Arsenal shirt against Chelsea in the community shield game. Talk about fate, there you have it.

Arsene Wenger has been buzzing about Cech’s signing and it has been evident in his recent interviews where he had clearly stated that he will go to the lengths to sign Petr Cech from Chelsea.

It must come as a personal satisfaction for Wenger, who has never won anything against Jose Mourinho and now he has signed his custodian and one of Premier League’s all-time great keepers.

Despite Cech’s capture, one player who will not be joining Arsenal this summer is Jackson Martinez, whose agent has confirmed the news of striker joining Atetico Madrid next season. An official statement is expected in next few hours.
