Chelsea FC captain will force a move to Barcelona in the summer if he isn’t allowed to leave Stamford Bridge.
The player is said to have decided to head back to Spain and anything that will jeopardize this dream would encounter a force from the defender.
Reports claim that Chelsea still wants the player in their dressing room due to his experience and would want to extend their captain’s contract by another year as it is an option on his current deal and according to Mundo Deportivo, it is a move that the player won’t approve.
Barça is still ready to press ahead with their interest in the player because of his interest with the player keen not to cause a stir with his departure hoping that a deal can be reached between now and the end of the season.
The former Marseille man has spent ten years with Chelsea and has won almost everything there is to be at club level and is scheduled for a meeting with the Blues hierarchy in the coming weeks to discuss his future.
Barcelona wants to hand him a two-year deal with an option to extend for another year before he can call it a day something the player is excited about.
