Azpilicueta has played in multiple roles for Chelsea across the defense.
Real Madrid are looking to make a January move for Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta. Madrid already signed Rudiger from the Blues last summer.
Azpilicueta was supposed to leave the club in the summer but he extended his contract during the transfer window. His contract will expire in 2024.
The Spaniard is one of Chelsea’s longest-serving players and has been an excellent servant to the club. He has won the Champions League and Premier League both with the club.
Azpilicueta has played in multiple roles for Chelsea across the defense, a dream for any manager.
According to FutbolTotal, Los Blancos are ready to make a €10m bid for the Spaniard in the January transfer window as they look to bring the 33-year-old back to his home country.
Lucas Vazquez has been utilised at right-back at times for Real Madrid, so it’s no surprise to see Carlo Ancelotti in the market for some competition for Dani Carvajal.
The 33-year-old defender is hardly going to start to improve as he gets into the latter stages of his career. If Madrid were able to sign Azpilicueta on a free transfer before he signed a new deal, it could have been a shrewd signing, but spending upwards of €10m wouldn’t be the smartest move.
