Chelsea: Two Horse Race for Casadei- Tuchel Makes Controversial Decision on Azpilicueta

Inter Milan are reportedly open to selling talented right back Cesare Casadei this summer and have already received a handful of offers. The 19 year old is equally interested in venturing in new waters next season and has accordingly instructed his agent to be on the lookout for worthwhile offers. Luckily enough, all the teams that are pushing to get his signature are all top flight clubs which means that he is guaranteed European football wherever he will decide to join this season.

Among the standout suitors is French outfit OGC Nice. French reports have revealed that Nice have already opened talks with the player’s agent and are confident that they can get the deal over the line. What makes Nice enticing to the player is the fact that he will be guaranteed first team football not to mention consistent appearances in the Europa League.

Chelsea are the second standout admirers of the player, having signed up for the transfer race late. Todd Boehly is once again planning on hijacking another transfer move this summer after Tuchel personally requested for the player’s signature. Talks are moving at lightening speed at the moment as Chelsea are expected to table their first bid anytime from now.

Chelsea don’t have much to offer to the youngster but the prospect of playing in the Premier League is too exciting to turn down. Chelsea already have two reliable right backs -James and Azpilicueta- but the latter has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona. Signing Casadei will give the skipper the perfect opportunity to jump ship to Barcelona as a replacement for Dani Alves.

Going by how things are progressing in the transfer talks, Tuchel has decided to take the highroad with Azpilicueta and given him the leeway to leave. Many were against the decision to extend his contract at Stamford, and his exclusion from Tottenham’s clash shed's light on how things really are at the club. The candidates for captaincy are quite a number, but a new one will only be appointed once Azpilicueta leaves.
