The Spanish giants have already made an enquiry for the keeper as they line up a successor to Victor Valdes.
Cech has held talks with boss Jose Mourinho and is understood to be tempted to leave for a new challenge after nine years at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho’s return to Chelsea helped persuade Cech to stay put for the time being. The 31-year-old was desperate to work with Mourinho again and the pair have already held talks in which the Blues boss indicated he is under pressure to bring through Chelsea’s next generation of stars.
Mourinho still rates Cech as one of the world’s best goalkeepers.
But he is also a huge fan of Chelsea keeper-in-waiting Thibaut Courtois 21 who is in his third season of a highly-successful loan spell at Atletico Madrid.
Mourinho accepts the time is fast approaching when he will have to make a decision on bringing Courtois into the first team fray.
Courtois is a wanted man with Chelsea having received a string of offers for the highly-rated Belgian.
