Azpilicueta plots hijack of Man United, Tottenham target, “speaks to star”

March 15th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has spoken to Manchester United and Tottenham target David Raya about a potential move across west London instead.

Raya is out of contract at the end of next season, and the Spain international is reportedly eager to test himself among Europe’s elite.

Both United and Spurs are on the hunt for a new long-term shot-stopper to replace David de Gea and Hugo Llloris respectively.

The Brentford goalkeeper previously revealed he has already turned down two contract offers with the Bees, and his services look set to be battled over this summer.

Azpilicueta is hoping to support the club in the anticipated transfer tussle, as reported by Ben Jacobs in his CaughtOffside column.

The Spanish compatriots will likely have harboured a personal relationship during their exploits with their national side.

Both were called up to Luis Enrique’s squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and the Chelsea defender has reportedly been in conversation with the Bees’ No.1 while on international duty.
