Cesar Azpilicueta says he is not interested in rumors linking him with a summer move to Barcelona because he is "very happy" at Chelsea.
Azpiliueta has proved to be an invaluable member of Chelsea since his arrival from Marseille in 2012. Operating at left-back under Jose Mourinho, the Spanish international shined at center-back this past term in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 formation, playing every minute in Chelsea's second Premier League title in the past three seasons. While he has reportedly been identified as one of Barcelona's top targets ahead of the summer transfer window, the 27-year-old insists he is keen stay at Stamford Bridge. "It's flattering that a club like Barcelona can be interested in you," he told Spanish outlet Marca. "The interest of teams of this level is very positive, but I am very happy here." Apzilicueta, who signed a new contract in December that will keep him in London until 2020, added: "I feel very valued by the club and I do not think of anything else." May 23 - 2:32 PM
