Barcelona are increasingly confident of negotiating a pre-contract with Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

The 32-year-old has spent nearly a decade with the Blues, but he could be on his way out in the summer.

His contract expires in June this year, and Marca claims that the Blues have yet to convince him to stay.

The defender is at 'odds' with the club as they are reluctant to hand him a multi-year contract renewal.

The hierarchy are only willing to hand a one-year deal with an option to extend for another 12 months.

Azpilicueta wants more security at the current stage of his career. The Spaniard is likely to leave the club.

Barcelona have already contacted his representative, and are confident that they can secure a pre-contract soon.

Xavi knows Azpilicueta's qualities from their time together in the national team, and he is keen on a reunion.

The Catalan giants are ready to offer him a two-year contract with an option to prolong his stay for another season.
