The situation

Barcelona are beginning to realize that if they want Cesar Azpilicueta as part of their squad next season they will have to dig deep. The Chelsea man won’t arrive at Camp Nou for free. The Spanish international has not yet met with the new Chelsea owners, but the English club has already leaked to several British media outlets that the veteran defender has renewed his contract after playing 30 games last season. That means that if he leaves this summer it will be in return for a transfer fee, although no figures have been disclosed. For Barcelona, though, trying to organize yet another signing will be difficult. Azpilicueta is on holiday and is awaiting a meeting with Chelsea’s new owners. The idea is for the talks to take place next week. The versatile defender, who will turn 33 in August, does not yet know what plans the new board have for him, but it is becoming clear to him that the previous promises that the club would allow him to leave no longer stand. As a result, the clubs that want him, Barcelona being the most insistent, will have to negotiate a transfer with Chelsea. Barcelona thought that the defender would leave for free, and his potential arrival was expected to be on a free transfer. But Chelsea have sent a clear and direct message to the Camp Nou with this leaked information: Azpilicueta won’t be going anywhere for free.

Tuchel’s opinion

Thomas Tuchel has spoken to the Spanish international and told him that he is counting on him. He considers him an important figure on the pitch and in the dressing room. Azpilicueta, who has spent 10 seasons at Stamford Bridge, is an institution at the English club. As well, Tuchel has already had a number of departures in defense and does not want to weaken his backline any further. In 2021/22, the former Osasuna man made 39 appearances. The player himself respects the club a lot and appreciates what they have allowed him to do in his career, and is waiting to hear more from both them and from the Catalans.
