Cesar Azpilicueta signs new four-year contract at Chelsea

Cesar Azpilicueta has signed a new four-year contract at Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The 29-year-old joined the Blues in 2012 from Marseille and has since won two Premier League titles, two domestic cups and the Europa League crown.

Azpilicueta has been a key figure for Chelsea over the past few seasons and has started all 14 Premier League games under Maurizio Sarri so far this term.

“I am really happy to extend my stay here at Chelsea,” the Spaniard told the club’s official website.

“Since I came, I felt the joy and responsibility to play for this club, these fans, and every time I go on the pitch I try do my best.

“Hopefully there is a lot to come and we can keep Chelsea where it belongs.”

The Club director Marina Granovskaia added: “Cesar is one of our longest-serving players and has proven to be a fantastic acquisition over the past six years.

“His professionalism and consistency in that time have been second to none and he has also developed into one of the squad’s most influential players.

“This new contract will take Cesar to 10 seasons at Chelsea, and we hope that over the next four years he will be a key part of our success.”
