Chelsea Offers   Azpilicueta New Two-year Contract To Fend Off Barca

By Chigozie Anueyiagu, The Nigerian Voice Sports

Chelsea skipper and Legend Cesar Azpilicueta will remain at Chelsea after signing a two-year contract extension, ending speculation over a move to Barcelona. The Spain international has been monitored by Barcelona over the years but his loyalty still remains in London as his service is still needed. Barcelona already had Christentein and Kounde and Raphinha snatched hijacked from the blues.

, Chelsea have ruled out the club legend’s exit and awarded him a small pay rise, to £150,000-a-week, to keep him for an extra year, until 2024.

His partnership with recently acquired Koulibaly from Napoli will be expected as season begins. It is yet to be known if the quest for Fofana is still in play.
