Cesar Azpilicueta Could Be Like Carles Puyol at Barcelona


Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, regretted his team’s 0-1 defeat to Manchester City in the 2021/2022 Premier League match.

Barcelona are so adamant about being able to sign Cesar Azpilicueta from Chelsea in the transfer market next summer. Apart from being able to get it on a free transfer, Barcelona want to make Cesar Azpilicueta the successor to Carles Puyol.

The Chelsea captain’s contract expires in the summer. With the difficulty that Chelsea got because of the punishment from the British Government against Roman Abramovich, Barcelona seems to be easy to get it.

However, if a new owner arrives, Chelsea have the option to extend his contract for another season.

After Chelsea has a new owner, the Blues will open their negotiations to be able to extend Azpilicueta’s existence at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea admires his experience and versatility, where he can play both centre-back and right-back.

If that happened, it would be a blow for Barcelona. However, as reported by Mundo Deportivo, this will not affect their desire to sign the player from Pamplona.

However, Barcelona really insisted on being able to get Cesar Azpilicueta this summer. The Catalan club have a special project for Azpilicueta.

Become Carles Puyol’s Successor at Barcelona Cesar Azpilicueta. The Spanish national team is attracted to reuse the services of this 31-year-old player thanks to his achievements in bringing the Blues to the Champions League trophy this season. His last match occurred in a 1-0 win over Bosnia in 2018 in a friendly match.

Barcelona believes that Cesar Azpiliceta can become Carles Puyol in Xavi Hernandez’s Barcelona team, a leader who is wise and highly committed and has high aggressiveness.

In addition, as has been repeatedly reported, Azpilicueta also wants to return to Spain and play in his native country after 10 years playing at Stamford Bridge and having won everything.

The achievements he made with Chelsea made Cesar Azpilicueta think it was time to look for a new challenge in a new place.

Still Focused With Chelsea Even though he admits he wants to return to Spain and makes Barcelona want him, Cesar Azpilicueta is currently still focused on being able to help Chelsea achieve the best performance in his last season.

The Blues are currently 11 points behind Manchester City who are at the top of the Premier League standings. In addition, Chelsea will also face Real Madrid in the two legs of the Champions League quarter-final match.

With the possibility of bringing Chelsea to a trophy this season, Azpilicueta’s focus is unwavering to help the Blues.
