Barcelona Plot Double Chelsea Raid After Making Cesar Azpilicueta Contract Offer

Barcelona have made a contract offer to Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, with the Catalan club also reportedly interested in Andreas Christensen. 

Azpilicueta, 32, is out of contract at the end of the season and is now able to negotiate with foreign clubs ahead of a potential free transfer this summer.

According to Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya, Barcelona are currently holding talks with the right-back and have offered him a deal until 2024.

According to the report, Azpilicueta is yet to inform Chelsea if he intends to join Barcelona at the end of the season.

Spain international Azpilicueta has been with Chelsea since joining from Marseille in 2012.

He has gone on to make 456 appearances for the club, winning two Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time in west London.

Meanwhile, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Barcelona could make a move for Chelsea centre-back Christensen.

The Denmark international is also out of contract at the end of the season and has stalled on signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with Christensen, who has made 148 appearances for Chelsea since graduating from the club's academy in 2014.

Speaking last month, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel urged Christensen to commit his future to the club.

“We are waiting since a long time now for confirmation,” said Tuchel.

“It is on Andreas to act how he acts on the pitch, he needs to act now off the pitch, and walk the talk because he tells us that he loves Chelsea.

“He tells us that he wants to stay and be a big part, because he is a big part of a big club, and I think he is a perfect fit and I think that he is not done yet here.”
