Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta is set to become a Barcelona player following the club’s agreement with a suitable replacement according to Diario Sport.
The Catalan club are set to agreeing a transfer worth €5m for the defender that would see Azpilicueta sign a two-year deal with the option of a third.
The deal is believed will be closed as soon as Chelsea seal the signing of Jules Kounde from Sevilla. Barcelona pulled out of the race as a result of their inability.
Barcelona is also interested in Azpilicueta’s teammate and compatriot Marcos Alonso. Optimism remains that they’ll be able to get the deal done but there’s not the same certainty as with Azpilicueta. According to football espana.
