This news has delighted the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern…
Since his arrival in 2012, no player has impressed more so than Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
The talented defender has proven himself as a jack-of-all-trades, having played at right-back, left-back and centre-back since his arrival – and impressing in equal measure in each role.
He is a player very much in the ilk of Chelsea cult hero Paulo Ferreira. He rarely can be rated a 9/10 or 10/10 – but is always a 7/10 or an 8/10, and that is exactly what you need from your defenders.
The 3-and-a-half year deal will see Azpilicueta remain at the club until 2020 – which has absolutely delighted the Chelsea fans in attendance.
Discussing the deal, Azpi said: “This new contract gives me the chance to continue my relationship with the club, that’s what I wanted and obviously I’m really happy here”
Good news all round, then.
Our landlord thinks that this deal is a masterstroke by Chelsea. Azpilicueta rarely gets the headlines, but he is always stellar – and he will continue to be the main man in the defence for years to come.
