Azpilicueta wanted by Barcelona

Barcelona are keen on signing Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta when his contract expires next summer.



The Spaniard has been with the Blues for nearly a decade, but there is uncertainty over his future at the club.

He will enter the final six months of his deal in January and so far, the hierarchy are yet to negotiate his renewal.

According to Marca, the Blaugrana are keen on pursuing an experienced right-back during next summer's transfer window.

Xavi is unimpressed with the current choices in Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto while Dani Alves is only a stopgap option.

Azpilicueta has become better with age, and he played a key role for Spain during their run to the Euro 2020 semi-final.

The Blaugrana have been long-term admirers of his services and believe they can lure him with a lucrative contract offer.

Azpilicueta will be offered a one-year deal by the Blues. In comparison, the Blaugrana are prepared to commit him for three seasons.
