Chelsea delivered a stinging slap to Barcelona

Barcelona appears to have a bitter fruit before the London club this summer, after many times making Chelsea hold a grudge

At the 2022 summer market, Barcelona repeatedly made Chelsea hate them. Raphinha and Jules Kounde were signed by Blaugrana before the London team. The name Barcelona is likely to haunt Chelsea as the Catalan giants look to strengthen their right wing with Cesar Azpilicueta.

Azpilicueta’s future remains uncertain at all times. According to some sources, the Spanish defender is still expected to join the Nou Camp this summer. If that happens, Azpilicueta will become the second player from Chelsea to join Barcelona directly after Andreas Christensen. Fortunately for the Blues, that appears unlikely following the latest news from journalist Gerard Romero.


Specifically, Romero stated that Azpilicueta has decided to extend his contract with Chelsea for another two years and has turned down Barca. The London club will make an official announcement in the coming hours. Romero also stated that Azpilicueta wishes to clarify his future before the start of the Premier League.


Barcelona, on the other hand, asked the Chelsea captain to wait a few more days for the club to resolve its issues with FFP. Unable to wait any longer, the former Marseille player decided to sign a new contract, which he shared with the team and Xavi.

Jules Kounde ‘flipped’ Chelsea to come to Barcelona, according to Romero. As a result, the information about Azpilicueta is more likely to be correct.


According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has committed his future to the club by extending his contract. This new agreement will be in effect until June 2024. This is said to be the reward for coach Thomas Tuchel and club president Todd Boehly’s tireless efforts in negotiating Azpilicueta’s stay with the club.

Chelsea and Barcelona used to have a lot of “common goals” before Azpilicueta. Not only did Chelsea lose to Raphinha and Kounde, but they were also “blooded” by Barcelona by attracting both Christensen and Alonso to the Spotify Camp Nou home team. Despite her previous failures, Chelsea was able to “hold” Azpilicueta this time. Remember, it was the Spaniard who had previously offered to leave Chelsea, rather than accepting any other invitation.


Azpilicueta told Sky Sports after a successful extension with Chelsea: “I’m thrilled to be staying at Chelsea; this is my family. I’ve been here for ten years and I’m always proud. pumped about the club’s upcoming projects “.

Azpilicueta joined Chelsea from Marseille in 2012 and has won nearly every major football award with the club. Typical examples include the Champions League 2021 and the FIFA Club World Cup 2022.
