Chelsea set to hand Azpilicueta & Van Aanholt new deals

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are ready to offer Cesar Azpilicueta and Patrick van Aanholt new contracts, according to the Standard

Azpilicueta has enjoyed a great season and has moved ahead of Ashley Cole as the club's No.1 left-back this season. 

Having taken over from the England veteran, he's gone from strength-to-strength under Jose Mourinho. 

And now, with the season coming to a close, it appears that the 'Special One' is ready to reward him with a new long term deal. 

Whilst Azpilicueta has impressed in the first team, Van Aanholt has progressed out on loan at Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem.

With Ashley Cole's future uncertain at Stamford Bridge, the 23-year-old Dutch full-back will be hoping to break through into Chelsea's starting XI in the near future. 

Van Aanholt may now be given his chance to prove his worth at Chelsea next season, as Mourinho targets long term success at the Bridge. 

The Blues' immediate focus will turn to their clash with Premier League strugglers Sunderland this weekend. Mourinho's side will be desperate to secure all three points as they look to continue their title challenge.
