Chelsea: Exit on cards for defender Chelsea: Exit on cards for defender

The 26-year-old is preparing for Monday’s massive showdown with Italy in France and is trying to ignore the speculation that he will be leaving Chelsea for a return to Spain.

Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao have been linked with a move but, for now, the defender is just concentrating on international football and the next match for Spain.

The full-back told El Confidencial: “At the moment I am at Chelsea. I know there are rumours but right now I am only focused on the national team and Chelsea.

“It’s summer and there are rumours. It is normal but I am not thinking about it now.”

Bilbao’s official transfer policy is to only sign professional players native to or trained in football in the greater Basque Country, where Azpilicueta is from.
