Chelsea could lose top defender Caesar Azlipicueta at the end of the season with the player's contract set to end just before the summer. However, Chelsea are reluctant to offer the player new contract. However, according to latest reports by UK's Sun Football, the player is allegedly in advanced talks with Spanish club Barcelona with the player willing to leave Chelsea and join the top tier club in Laliga.
Azlipicueta arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2012 from Marseille and has been outstanding for the Blues, however, the Spaniard's time seems to be over at the West London club with the player now willing to get a new challenge. Azlipicueta has been outstanding for the Blues especially in defense, gaining the trust of club head coach Thomas Tuchel.
However, the Blues could still sell him to interested clubs in January to avoid losing him for free in June next year. The 32 year old will be a free agent from June next year as he runs down his contract at Chelsea. Thomas Tuchel is yet to have his say over the future of the player despite the player's interest to leave the club.
