Chelsea to listen César Azpilicueta offers, claims a report from England which also links the Blues with Juventus wing-back Kwadwo Asamoah. Former Juventus manager Antoine Conte is set to take over the reigns at Stamford Bridge after the Euro 2016 is over who had a catastrophic last season, finishing 10th in the Premier League table which is the worst Title defence by any Champions team in the history of the English Premier League.
César Azpilicueta is one of the best players for Chelsea during their hardest times, but it is rumoured that Antoine Conte is not impressed by the Spaniard’s style of play and is eyeing a summer swoop for Juventus star Kwadwo Asamoah. Conte managed Asamoah when he was at Juventus and the Italian wants the right wing-back at Chelsea, according to reports.
César Azpilicueta is just 26-years-old and is capable of playing as a left-back as well. Azpilicueta was played as a left-back by Jose Mourinho and the Spaniard played the role to perfection, playing a vital part in Chelsea’s double win in the 2014-15 season. Mourinho continued his trust in Azpilicueta and played him on the left side despite signing Baba Rahaman for a hefty fee. The tradition was followed by interim manager Guus Hiddink as well. In his three years at Chelsea, Azpilicueta made a name for himself among the Chelsea faithful and it will not be a sweet news for the Blues if Chelsea are really in place to sell the Spaniard.
Azpilicueta’s versatility and strong defensive attributes make him one of the finest fullbacks in the world. It will be a big loss for Chelsea if they sell the former Marseille man and eventually fail to replace him with a better player. Though Asamoah is good and has Conte’s trust, he has to come and settle in a league which is considered hardest to adapt to. Meanwhile, Azpilicueta is very well used to the EPL circumstances and has proved his potential in almost every time he was played.
Chelsea to listen César Azpilicueta offers ? Well, it sounds crazy if you see this from a Chelsea fan’s point of view. But if Conte is going to play a 3-5-2, it is complex to position Azpilicueta since he is not that effective going forward.
