Arsenal have completed the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea in a £11m deal after we ironed out the finer details of what is arguably the biggest deal of this transfer window, the Daily Mail reports.
After weeks of negotiations and various noises coming from various camps, the deal has finally gone through and we can finally welcome the world-class shot-stopper.
There is a notion that we finally have our replacement for David Seaman given Jens Lehmann’s erratic nature towards the end of his career.

The fact that we’ve snatched a player from Jose Mourinho against his wishes is a massive boost too and gives us a mental advantage going into next season.
Cech’s debut could be against his old club at Wembley as we prepare to face the champions in the Community Shield as the season’s curtain raiser.

Staggered #MUFC not moved to sign Cech. Good age (33), vast PL & CL experience, winner, solid character, cheap. Ideal replacement for DDG

Petr Cech to Arsenal. For first time in far too long, Arsenal will have a solid, secure, assured, dependable keeper. Expensive but worth it

Petr Cech is a fantastic signing for Arsenal – and could be worth at least 10 more points – yet I am surprised Mourinho has not blocked it
