Chelsea will have to make a number of important decisions this summer, including deciding who will be permitted to depart the club and who will be targeted for retention attempts.
Thomas Tuchel and the new owners of the club will work together to make the decisions, which will take into account a range of aspects.
Cesar Azpilicueta, the club’s captain, is one of the players whose futures will be reviewed in the coming weeks. The Blues exercised an option to extend his contract a few months ago, ensuring that he would remain with the club until 2023. Despite this, it is not always the case that he will stay.
Despite the fact that Barcelona is quite interested in getting his services again, there was a lot of talk that Chelsea will still trade him this summer.
According to a report from Barca Times, they will be able to sign the Spanish international this summer for “less than 5 million euros,” but Chelsea will have to grant their consent for him to go.
