Cesar Azpilicueta hopes to stay at Chelsea but remains in the dark on his future

As time moves on and January approaches, we are still no clearer to knowing what will happen to a number of Chelsea defenders come the summer.

Four of them remain as things stand, able to negotiate contracts with new clubs and sign a pre-agreement in January, which is now less than weeks away.

Cesar Azpilicueta is the club captain, and even he is yet to know where his future lies, according to Eurosport.

They claim that both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are circling for the versatile defender, but it is his hope to stay at Chelsea.

However, in the next sentence the claims are that he is still being kept in the dark as to what the club’s intentions are for him, so he is preferring to keep his options open.

As we know, this could mean entering negotiations with a potential new club next month, which is far from the ideal scenario should Chelsea want him to stay.
