Zapping Goal! soccer club Ronaldo – Messi: the duel in numbers
At the end of the contract next June with Chelsea, the Spanish right side, César Azpilicueta, is closely followed by FC Barcelona, which hopes to recruit him freely next summer.
But while the former Olympique de Marseille player was waiting for the extension offer from the Blues before making his decision for his future, the reigning European champion would not want to offer his captain a three-year contract as he request, according to information from the Daily Telegraph.
Which brings César Azpilicueta even closer to Barça. The 32-year-old is therefore heading back to Spain, where he started his career at Osasuna before joining OM in the summer of 2010.
