It might not go the Catalan giant’s way though, considering the fact that both players are important first team members of the London based Football Club.

Andreas Christensen is 25 and started from the Chelsea academy from where he broke into the first team and with the coming of Thomas Tuchel and the center back’s new found form, also Antonio Rudiger’s unsure future at the club and with Thiago Silva’s contract expiring this summer, Chelsea will be looking to keep the Dane even if it means agreeing to his £120,000 per week wage request.

Cesar Azpilicueta on the other hand happens to be the captain of the English current league leaders and also the clubs longest serving player with 9 years.

His role diversity is also a huge asset for Thomas Tuchel, but the 35 year old Spaniard isn’t as young as he was and Chelsea has also shown their willingness to bolster their already marvelous defence following their failed attempt to acquire France and Sevilla defender, Jules Kounde and their interest in Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule.

Also Thomas Tuchel’s use of younger defenders like Trevor Chalobah and Maalang Saar makes room for more competition since both defenders are playing well.

Nevertheless, Ronald Koeman’s side will still be looking to go for the duo this summer in other to salvage their failing team.
