Cesar Azpilicueta

Spanish soccer player Cesar Azpilicueta could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge after a decade playing in London.

What situation?

Barcelona are confident of signing Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta on a free transfer this summer. Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta, 32, has been an established first-teamer for Chelsea ever since he first moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012. However he is at odds with the club over renewing his contract, giving Barca an opportunity to add him to their squad.

Keen to add quality and experience to their backline, Barcelona have made Cesar Azpilicueta a top target for the summer transfer window. Coach Xavi is fighting hard to complete the deal, which would go through when his deal expires in June. The Blues hope to count on his services for 2022-23 and talks have taken place over a possible renewal.

For now though the two parties are yet to strike an agreement, with no new talks having been held between player and club since the beginning of January. Chelsea are only willing to offer him a one-year extension with the option for a further season because of the Spain international’s age, less than would be on the table with Barca.

 

A little about Cesar Azpilicueta

Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta joined Chelsea from Marseille in the summer of 2012 and has become a firm favourite at Stamford Bridge, racking up more than 400 appearances in his nine and a half years at the club. During that time he has helped the Londoners to a host of trophies, including two Premier League titles and last year’s Champions League. Should he choose to leave, Chelsea may face an extensive rebuilding task at the back over the summer. Antonio Rudiger and Andrea Christensen are also out of contract and could leave, with both players yet to commit their future to the club.
