Spanish media is claiming that Chelsea and Spain defender Cesar Azpilicueta has caught the eye of Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The defender has been an ever-present for the Blues this season as they overcame the odds and won the Premier League after finishing a disappointing 10th last season.
Azpilicueta played every minute of Chelsea’s campaign and caught the eye of his country’s club sides.
The defender played and adapted well to a variety of positions for the Blues this season, including left back, right back and centre back positions.
Barcelona is reportedly keener on signing the player than Real Madrid. The Catalans have a severe shortage at the back and are particularly unhappy with the players that currently fill in at their right fullback position.
Since the departure of Dani Alves, they have found it incredibly hard to get a credible player to fill the huge gap left by the Brazilian’s departure.
Azpillicueta has reiterated his commitment to the Blues, adding that he felt good to be linked with Barcelona. He, however, dismissed suggestions that he would be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
