More news now on players departing Chelsea this summer, and there looks like there will be at the very least, a strong handful of them and maybe even more.
Rumours this morning are linking both Marcos Alonso and club captain Cesar Azpilicueta to moves to Barcelona this summer.

They may well be joining their current team mate from Chelsea, Andreas Christensen, who has now agreed a 5-year contract worth €5m-a-season to join Barcelona according to AS. Meaning that if all three of these transfers come off, Barcelona will have three of Chelsea’s senior defenders go into their back line this summer!
To be honest I’m not losing sleep over any of these three players leaving Chelsea this summer so it doesn’t really disappoint me. All three have been great servants and Azpilicueta will go down as a club legend. But the time feels right for me now that all three depart.
