Chelsea are reportedly considering parting ways with one of their longest serving players, Cesar Azpilicueta this summer, according to reports.
The Blues are ready to confirm Maurizio Sarri as their new boss and the Italian manager is expected to make lots of changes to his first-team squad this summer.
Spain international defender Cesar Azpilicueta is one of the players who could be affected by Sarri’s arrival to the Stamford Bridge stadium as reports suggest that the player could be forced out of the team so as to give room for incoming Juventus star Daniele Rugani.
According to Spanish Newspaper El Gol Digital, Chelsea might listen to the €20million deal proposed by Athletic Bilbao for his services.
The same report claims that the Blues are looking at the prospect of bringing 33-year-old Brazilian defender Miranda as the player’s replacement.
Miranda, who currently plays for Inter Milan is enjoying a great run of form in Russia as he was rock-solid at the back of the pitch for the Sambar boys in their 2-0 victory against Serbian on Wednesday.
Chelsea’s speculated interest in the Brazilian defender could turn out to be a false information as the player looks too old to withstand the physical nature of the League.
Meanwhile, Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, David Luiz, and Cesar Azpilicueta are some old members of the team who could be heading to the club’s exit door during this summer transfer window.
