Barcelona seem to be trying to take advantage of the current Chelsea situation as they are attempting to sign the entire back 3 that won the champions league last season for free!
Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are all out of contract this summer and the current ownership situation at Chelsea have put new contract talks on hold.
The Catalans seem to have already agreed a contract with Andreas Christensen who looks on his way out of Chelsea at the end of the season and reports also suggest that Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta could be joining his teammate at the nou camp this summer.
As if trying to sign Christensen and Azpilicueta isn’t enough, Barcelona are also trying to sign Antonio Rudiger.
Reports say that Barca chiefs and the player’s agent have had secret meetings ahead of the proposed move as both parties were pictured together in Barcelona last night.
It would be an ultimate steal from a Barcelona perspective if they are able to complete the signing of all three defenders and it would be a hard one on Chelsea Football Club.
However, according to Matt Law, Antonio Rudiger’s camp are still insistent on a decision not being made on the players future and previous reports have suggested that they were still waiting for an offer from Chelsea.
Whatever the case may be, Chelsea cannot hold contract renewal talks at the moment.
