Barcelona are said to be waiting on Chelsea star Cesar Azpilicueta to accept their contract offer.

The Catalan giants have continued their pursuit of the Spanish defender, and have offered him a two-year deal with the option of a further season.

Chelsea have reportedly told Cesar Azpilicueta that they will wait for him to decide his future.

Fabrizio Romano claims that the Blues will not rush their captain into a decision.

The Italian transfer guru said: “Chelsea have told César Azpilicueta that they wait for him, as it’s a personal decision. It’s about life and not just football – waiting for Azpi to communicate his plans.”

The Spaniard is out of contract at Chelsea this summer and he is likely to leave after a decade at Stamford Bridge.

There have been some reports that Chelsea have the option to extend the contract, but they are unlikely to do so against their loyal defender’s will.

Azpilicueta has seen his involvement reduced this season, and that could lead him to pursue a deal away from West London.

According to Sport, negotiations with Barca are already at an advanced stage, and Barca are said to be waiting on the offer they have presented to the defender.

Azpilicueta is already able to agree a contract ahead of the summer, as long as it is with a club outside of England.

The Blaugrana enjoyed a busy January transfer window, despite their ongoing financial issues.

Ferran Torres, Adama Traore and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were all brought in to strengthen Xavi Hernandez‘s squad.
