Atletico Madrid are on the brink of signing Chelsea’s veteran defender Cesar Azpilicueta, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Azpilicueta holds the record for the longest-serving player in the Blues squad, and he is now preparing to bid farewell to Stamford Bridge. Initially, the Spaniard had agreed on personal terms with Inter Milan, but a change of heart occurred once Atletico expressed their interest. In a fascinating turn of events, it seems that the defender’s family played a significant role in his decision to return to his home country. As a result, Azpilicueta is set to join Atletico Madrid on a free transfer.
