Barcelona are going all out for Cesar Azpilicueta after ruling themselves out of the race to sign Jules Kounde, as per Diario Sport.
Barcelona will pay Chelsea €5m to sign Azpilicueta for two seasons, with an option of one more year.
Azpilcueta is a versatile defender who can play either at centre-back, right-back or left-back.
Besides his wealth of experience and winning mentality, he's also a player who rarely ever gets injured with nearly 500 appearances for Chelsea in about 10 years.
The only drawback with the Spaniard is his age - he turns 33 next month.
