Back in December 2021, Thomas Tuchel was asked about Azpilicueta's future, revealing that he was not concerned about a potential departure.

"I don’t see any problem here. The situation between Azpi, me and the club is very clear. He is our captain. He has all possibilities to stay here as long as possible and become the legend he already is. He is a fantastic captain and a fantastic player."


Chelsea are reportedly upset with Christensen's representatives for their contract demands and now face losing the Dane on a free transfer.

Negotiations are said to be advanced between Barcelona and the defender, who could seal a deal before the end of the season.

However, Chelsea will try to convince the pair to stay as they face losing the both for free.
