Chelsea Defender Linked with Barcelona Move

Chelsea Defender Linked with Barcelona Move

A little piece of transfer tittle-tattle appearing in the English tabloid press suggests that Barcelona might be bringing in a right-back other than the five listed in our current poll.

According to the The Daily Star, Barcelona could be about to swoop for the Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta.

Azpilicueta demonstrated last season, as Chelsea swept to Premier League glory, he is an adaptable player. Very solid in defence and with good ball distribution skills, Azpilicueta is able to play as a right-back or as part of a back-three, something he did with aplomb for Antonio Conte`s Chelsea.

However, although our source mentions that Barcelona are interested, we should point out that the player has pledged his future to Chelsea and that the reigning English Premier League title holders quite probably won`t want to part with one of the more dependable members of their normal starting eleven.

Which, in my opinion, leaves Barcelona with a choice of right-back recruits as listed in our current poll.
