Cezar Azpilicueta

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has refused to pledge his future to the club despite his contract running down this summer.

Azpilicueta’s contract with the Blues is set to expire at the end of the current campaign and Barcelona are reportedly a possible destination.

The Spanish defender could join fellow centre-backs Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger in walking out on the club as a result, but would not be drawn on the speculation when asked about his future.

“This is not the place or the time,” he told reporters ahead of Spain’s upcoming games against Albania and Iceland. “What we have learned with the pandemic is to live day today and in the moment.

“We are living in moments of uncertainty at Chelsea, that is the reality.”

The 32-year-old joined Chelsea from Marseille in 2012 and has since made 454 appearances in all competitions.
