The Spain international has already been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United as former boss Jose Mourinho wants him on board, but they are not the only interested party.

Barca are on the look out for a replacement for Dani Alves, who is set to join Juventus, and Azpilicueta is on their wanted list along with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes a number of clubs are keen to take Azpilicueta back to Spain, including Atletico Madrid, and a battle looks to be on the cards.

Balague told Sky Sports: “Some of the top clubs in Europe are after Azpilicueta’s signature, not least because of his versatility in being able to play in both full-back positions with equal confidence.”

Azpilicueta has insisted he is happy at Chelsea and is not thinking about leaving, but the chance to return to Spain with a top club like Barca or Atletico is sure to appeal.
