Azpilicueta’s contract ended this summer, but after making more than thirty appearances this season his contract was automatically renewed for another season.

Therefore, Barca will have to negotiate a small fee with Chelsea if they want the defender.

The Champions League winner has made 474 appearances for the club, scoring 17 goals and assisting 55.

He has won seven trophies including the Champions League once and the Premier League twice.

Azpilicueta reportedly would like to leave the club, however he’s refusing to submit a transfer request out of respect for the side he has been with for a decade.

The Catalan giants are also looking to sign Chelsea left back Marcos Alonso in a double swoop for the pair.

Alonso on the other hand has made his desire to leave more obvious, and is desperate to play in his home country.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Catalan club are still hopeful they’ll be able to secure the pair this summer

He claimed: “Barcelona are still working on Marcos Alonso deal. No doubts on player side: potential agreement ready on personal terms with Barça, still waiting to find solution with Chelsea.

“Barça are also hoping to receive final answer for Cesar Azpilicueta soon.”

Chelsea are also expected to be busy this summer lining up deals for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong and Leeds winger Raphinha, while a move for Raheem Sterling is all but done.
