After Koundé, Chelsea deprives Barça of another defender –

Despite growing interest from Barca, César Azpilicueta could be retained at Chelsea next season.

Questioned this Friday by the journalist of Times Tom Roddy, Thomas Tuchel gave an update on the situation of defenders at Chelsea. The German coach notably mentioned the case of César Azpilicueta, who is the subject of an offer deemed too weak by FC Barcelona. “We have a Spanish international player, captain but Barcelona don’t see him at this level – so I’m not sure I want to give Azpi what he wants. Maybe I’m a little annoyed with Barca. But I’m doing my best for Chelsea. I said that to Azpilicueta, he doesn’t like it – but he understands. It’s difficult for him because the other club [le Barça] is permanently on him. »

The Blues coach then refused to dwell on the Jules Koundé case, announced very close to an agreement to become the third recruit of the Todd Boehly era. “That’s what you say… but I won’t comment on the other players. No news for the moment. I will tell you if there will ever be any news about Koundé”.
