According to Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona will continue to negotiate with Chelsea regarding the transfer of César Azpilicueta.
Last week it was communicated that the Blaugrana would consider signing the Chelsea defender if they missed out on Jules Koundé.
Despite the Spanish side signing Koundé from Sevilla yesterday, they are still interested in making a move for the 32-year-old defender who spent the last 10 years of his career at Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel expressed his anger regarding how Barcelona were going about trying to seal a deal for their player.
Azpilicueta has let Chelsea’s management know that he wants to move to Barcelona. However, it appears that the club board are not ready to submit to all of the Spaniard’s wishes.
Barcelona are developing a strained relationship with Chelsea during this transfer window, as it was the Blaugrana who beat the West London club to sign Koundé, despite the English side submitting a higher offer.
