Azpilicueta near to Chelsea departure

César Azpilicueta is another Chelsea player expected to leave the club this summer.

The captain is the longest serving player at Stamford Bridge, but he is expected to be granted his wish to leave on a free transfer.

He is now set to join Inter Milan, having rejected an offer from Bayern Munich.

Now 33, Azpilucueta was heavily linked with a  move to Barcelona last summer, although that did not materialise in the end. However, with Reece James, when fit, an almost certain starter in the right back role, his first team opportunities have become more limited.

And there is also January signing Malo Gusto to compete for the position as well. He was signed from Lyon but immediately loaned back to the French club for the rest of the season.

Although he still has one year left on his contract, there is an understanding on both sides that the Spaniard will be allowed to leave for free, in recognition of his 11 years of service, and the professionalism that he has shown during his time in West London.
