Azpilicueta not in Marseille squad

Published Add your comment

Cesar Azpilicueta has not been included in the Marseille squad for Thursday night's Europa League clash with FC Sheriff Tiraspol, fuelling speculation the right-back is on the brink of a move to Chelsea.

Azpilicueta has been linked with the European champions virtually all year and reports in France have claimed an agreement was reached over a transfer fee late Tuesday night.

It was also suggested the 22-year-old Spaniard, who started Marseille's opening two Ligue 1 games of the season, would sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
