Barça is working on next year’s squad. The Catalan club has the need to reinforce several lines, but does not have the money to undertake large signings. For this reason, in recent months, they have been interested in players who finished their contract and could land for free at the entity.
Who could be in this situation is Azpilicueta, who ends his contract in 2022 and has not yet renewed with Chelsea. Captain blue He is a legend in the English team, but he could want to change of scene before finishing his career and Barça would be a great destination. For its part, the Blaugrana club would greatly value their experience, competitiveness and versatility, for a plot that needs several reinforcements. The signing of Alves is just one example of the need for the culé defense, but in principle the Brazilian would only be there until the end of the season, which would open the door to Azpilicueta.
The truth is that from Chelsea they trust to renew their captain. Azpilicueta has managed, through work and quality, to be one of the most important players in the team, and the whole blue it won’t let you go so easily. It would not be surprising if the English presented him with an offer equal to or greater than that of Barça to convince him, which would leave the Blaugrana team without options because due to the economic situation they are going through, they cannot match teams with as much capital as English.
Azpilicueta has shown in the Spanish team that he is a player with a great ability to adapt to positional play, with a great associative quality. For Barça, it would be a high-level reinforcement, which would help solve many of the defensive problems that the Blaugrana team presents. The ball is in Azpilicueta’s court, and starting in January, he will be able to freely negotiate with any team.
