Goalkeeper would like to return to Chelsea, says talks have been 'positive'

David Rogers

Schwarzer was solid in his time with the Blues, and enjoyed it enough that he'd like to be part of the squad again next season

Veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is about to be out of contract, but the Australian is still hopeful that he'll be able to make it a two-year stay at Chelsea. When asked if he'd like to return for a second season recently, he responded with the following:

"I would like to yeah. We've had positive discussions and I think it's just a matter of time now before something is concluded one way or the other."

I'd imagine the club's first choice would be to have both Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois in London next season, but if that doesn't work out, the Blues could do an awful lot worse than bringing Schwarzer back as number two. I'd imagine he'd still be relatively cheap, as at this point in his career it makes sense that some stability and the chance to compete for silverware probably means more than the largest possible paycheck.

Personally, I felt far better with Schwarzer between the pipes than I have with any backup in recent memory. If the Cech/Courtois tandem doesn't work out, I'd be more than happy to see Schwarzer return.
