PETR Cech has urged Chelsea not to linger over appointing a new manager.
Blues will say goodbye to 'interim' boss Rafael Benitez after two pending friendly matches against Manchester City in the USA.
Former boss Jose Mourinho is their number one target, but with him still on the payroll of Real Madrid that could take some hard negotiating.
Cech said: “You give the new manager the time to prepare things. The earlier he can be here, he can start work on things and not leave it for the last moment.”
But the Czech keeper said he was confident Chelsea would use the benefit of their plentiful experience in summer management switches.
He said: “I am not afraid that something wouldn't happen, because here has been the same every year and the club knows how to deal with situations like that.
“A change of the manager in our club is not a problem either because we know how it is - players, staff and everybody around.
“I wouldn't say it will be a 'usual' summer, but a summer as you would expect it.”
Cech added: “Let’s see how fast we get the manager officially and who it will be and then you can obviously start working on that.
“As soon as you can do transfers, the market will move all over the place and everybody will try to get ready for the new season.
“I believe the club have enough experience to prepare for the new season.”
