Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern have the widest smiles of all at the moment thanks to their form on the pitch and news off of it.
Of course, any fan in the country would be happy with their side being in-line for a domestic double as Chelsea are -thanks to their FA Cup and Premier League participation.
And, next season, they’ll surely be looking to take on the cream of Europe in a bid to earn their second Champions League trophy.
They’ll need investment in the summer, of course, and will have to keep hold of their best players and it seems as though they’re going to be keeping Cesar Azpilicueta at the very least.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, the Spanish defender played down any idea of going to Barcelona whilst he also admitted that he simply wants to think about playing for his current club.
“The truth is right now I am only thinking about Chelsea and I feel loved here. I’ve been here five years now and I extended my contract not long ago.
“Of course it’s flattering to be linked to Barcelona: it means you’re playing well. I wasn’t hearing those sort of stories last season. That’s a consequence of us being top of the Premier League, things are going well.”
Good news for Chelsea fans, then, who rate the Spanish defender as one of the best around.
Thoughts, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
