Barcelona interested in Chelsea-duo

Barcelona continues the search for suitable recruits. The requirement currently seems to be players who are free agents, as the club has major financial problems. Already this summer, they found players that they did not have to pay a transfer fee to secure, in the form of Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero.

Next summer, the plan is to try to recruit Chelsea duo Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, writes the Daily Mail. Both players are on contracts that expire after the current season.

However, it is not certain that it all goes Barça’s way. The two players have been important in Thomas Tuchel’s team building, and extensions with the English club are far from impossible, the newspaper states.

Azpilicueta is currently wearing the team captain’s armband and Christensen can be assumed to be even more important for Chelsea if teammate Antonio Rüdiger disappears, where he is rumored to be at Real Madrid.
