Chelsea are reportedly lining up another new contract for one of their players this summer – and some Blues fans on Twitter are excited that it’s club captain Cesar Azpilicueta being linked with a fresh deal.

The Athletic reports that Andreas Christensen is “close” to penning a new long-term deal to stay at Stamford Bridge. Also, Antonio Rudiger is another Blues player the club are trying to get to extend his stay.

It is understood that Chelsea captan Cesar Azpilicueta is the next individual on their list. 

The report explains that the 32-year-old defender is line to be offered a new contract. His current deal is due to expire in 2022.

Thiago Silva extended his Chelsea contract earlier in the summer, so it’s great to see the club going about business to tie down their defenders.

Azpilicueta, who’s been at the Bridge since 2012, is the senior figure that drives this current group. He lifted the Champions League trophy as captain last season and is a modern Blues great.
