Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta being eyed by Barcelona

Chelsea and skipper Cesar Azpilicueta remain at a contract stand-off and Barcelona are growing increasingly confident of signing Cesar Azpilicueta.

When his current contract expires at the end of the season, the club’s captain and longest-serving player wants a long-term agreement, which is expected to be three years. However, at the age of 32, Chelsea is unlikely to provide more than the standard one-year contract to senior players.

There is a chance that faithful servant Azpilicueta will be able to swing it with a 12-month extension beyond 2023.

The Spanish defender has been with Chelsea since 2012 and has won every club award since then.

He is also a well-known fitness enthusiast with an unblemished injury record, having missed only one training session, let alone a match, in those nine years.

Regardless of their experience with the club, Chelsea has a habit of only granting short-term contracts to players above the age of 30.

The Guardian says Azpilicueta is now excited to play under Xavi at Barcelona.

Chelsea are open to a one-year extension with an option for an extra year.

Barca are offering a better deal and as it stands Azpilicueta will be playing for the Blaugrana next season.
