César Azpilicueta ends his contract in 2022 and is one of the 'bargains' that the market will offer from January. FC Barcelona would be interested in adding him to his squad
The FC Barcelona has clear that next summer will have to go back to do a good use of the market of free players. Already it does some months did it with the Kun Agüero, Eric García and Memphis Depay, that arrived free after finishing agreement, and in 2022 will touch to go back to do it again. The economic situation of the entity, although it is better and will be still better to the next year, still is delicate and therefore they will not lose of sight the 'bargains' that there is.
One of these 'bargains' seems that it goes to be César Azpilicueta, polyvalent defender of Chelsea. The navarro finish agreement inside some months and for now has not arrived to an agreement to prolong it. The 'blues' already have commanded him a proposal so that it follow, but the international Spanish still has not decided if it wants to remain or prefers to test luck in another team. Thus, in the Camp Nou see with options to convince him so that it arrive with the letter of freedom in July of the next year.
As they explain in the newspaper 'MARK', the Barcelona is interested in incorporating to the right-handed side to reinforce this line. Dani Alves Has arrived recently to complete this lane beside Sergiño Dest, Sergi Roberto and Óscar Mingueza, but the alone Brazilian has signed until final of course and can that it do not follow another campaign more. Besides, Dest does not finish to convince to Xavi Hernández, Roberto finish agreement and could leave, and Mingueza does not give the level like carrilero and prefers him of head office.
By all this, the Barça would have clear that can not leave happen the opportunity of fichar free to a player like Azpilicueta, that is international, champion of Europe and has a lot of experience to the highest level. His age could be a problem, since it fulfilled 32 years in August, but conserves very in shape and the normal is that of a level high at least two or three seasons more.
A complete side that would improve a lot to the Barça
The captain 'blue' would go up notably the level of the defence barcelonista. As lateral is defensivamente quite better that Dest, Alves, Mingueza or Roberto, whereas ofensivamente, without being a 'crack', fulfils, knows his strong and feeble points, and can be also important. Besides, in the 3-4-3 that is using Xavi now could be a resource tremendo to play of defender by the right, since in Chelsea has played a lot here. In summary, would be a spectacular reinforcement in all the senses and is therefore by what in Barcelona pretend to do an effort by him.
