While much of the talk centring around Chelsea’s transfer activity has naturally focused on illustrious arrivals, the more pessimistic punters in this evening are worried the Antonio Conte overhaul will have an impact on their Stamford stalwarts.
One of those is Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta, who has been linked with shock moves away to Manchester United and Barcelona.
Previously a Blues bastion, it was bizarre for the locals who frequent our halls to see the 26-year old even touted as a potential exit, and establishing himself as one of the most popular players in West London.
So, reports from the Sun will have come as good news to that lot at least.
They claim that the incoming Italian is eager to ward off interest from the Blaugrana, informing the La Liga champions there is no chance he will be willing to sell.
Since joining the club, the La Roja star has enjoyed major success, winning almost every trophy available to him.
