The Blues defender, Cesar Azpilicueta on Tuesday put to pen a new four-year contract, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2022.
The defender has been The Blues’ captain for Premier League games this season, and is now just two appearances away from reaching 300 games in Chelsea blue. He will become only the seventh overseas player in their history to reach that considerable landmark.
Azpilicueta took to his official twitter page to say;
“Delighted to be a blue until 2022. Since I arrived in 2012, my desire has been always to give my best and fight for this club, and now more than ever, I feel the responsibility to bring more success to this family. WE WILL KEEP THE BLUE FLAG FLYING HIGH”
While 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.”
The Blues’ fans must be happy to have Cesar at Stamford Bridge till 2022.
