Cesar Azpilicueta “very close” to joining Barcelona for €3m

Chelsea are set to sell Cesar Azpilicueta to Barcelona for €3m, according to El Chiringuito’s latest report.

Jose Alvarez from the bombastic Spanish TV show claims that the deal for the defender is “very close”, with the new Chelsea owners clearly going down the same route as the previous group in letting their club captain go to fulfill his dreams for a nominal sum.

That was what we expected, but things had gone very quiet on this front for a while.

It’s the right thing to do – but given we’re two defenders down already this summer it’s going to put us into even deeper trouble in terms of squad building. Azpi’s ability to play centre back or wing back in this formation has proved invaluable, and giving that up alone is a blow, let alone the leadership and experience he brings.

Whoever we get in to replace him, €3m isn’t going to cover it.
