Chelsea football club will not let their captain Cesar Azpilicueta leave for Barcelona this season for free.

La Blaugrana have been linked with a move for the defender ahead of next campaign.

The sanctions previously placed on Chelsea by the UK government would have let Azpilicueta depart when his contract expired next month.

Antonio Rudiger had joined Real Madrid on free transfer with Marco Alonso soon to be announced at Camp Nou. The Stamford Bridge club cannot afford to let another defender leave for free

The current takeover made way for the removal of the UK Government sanctions. Chelsea can now negotiate a renewal, with an extension clause activated, after the 32-year-old made over 30 appearances in all competitions last season.

According to reports from Marca, Chelsea are happy for Azpilicueta to make the decision on his future, but they will demand a transfer fee.

The clause means he is tied to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea potentially looking for a deal in the region of £13m for the Basque full back.
