Chelsea sweat over the future of stalwart, Euro giants circle over formidable defender

Cesar Azpilicueta

Though it was a truly sour season at Stamford Bridge and few Chelsea players kept there reputations in tact, the Blues in the Transfer Tavern will always have a soft spot for a certain Spanish full-back. 

Cesar Azpilicueta has been a stalwart in West London ever since his move from Atletico Bilbao back in 2012, emerging as perhaps the most reliable full-back in the Premier League.

So, imagine the discontent amongst the Blues supporting punters when reports in the Daily Telegraph suggested they could face a battle to hold on to the La Roja international.

La Liga giants Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for the 26-year old as an alternative to Hector Bellerin of Arsenal, as the Blaugrana bid to replace Dani Alves.

While he remains a fixture at the Bridge, major changes are expected under incoming coach Antonio Conte, with the allure of the Catalan giants previously proving hard to resist for Premier League players.

Could you blame him for leaving for Barcelona? Are they too hard to turn down?
