Azpilicueta Chelsea link hardens
Soccer:Cesar Azpilicueta has not been included in Marseille’s squad for tomorrow night’s Europa League clash with FC Sheriff Tiraspol, fuelling speculation the right-back is on the brink of a move to Chelsea.
Azpilicueta has been linked with the European champions virtually all year and reports in France have claimed an agreement was reached over a transfer fee late last night.
It was also suggested the 22-year-old Spaniard, who started Marseille’s opening two Ligue 1 games of the season, would sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge. The prospective fee is believed to be in the region of £7million (€8,870,000). Chelsea stuck to their usual policy of not commenting on transfer speculation this morning.
