Chelsea boost as defender confirms he will play at Stamford Bridge next season


Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has confirmed that he will not leave the club during the summer transfer window.

Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao are all interested in making a move for the Spain international according to recent reports.

But he rubbished the rumours as he insisted that he is fully focused on Euro 2016 and next season's Premier League campaign.

"At the moment I am at Chelsea,' he told El Confidencial.

"I know there are rumours but right now I am only focused on the national team and Chelsea.

"It's summer and there are rumours. It is normal but I am not thinking about it now. We know how the market is restricted for Athletic.

"They continue their philosophy and since I was a kid I have always lived it because I've had colleagues who went to Bilbao to play.

"I have been away from Spain for six years, four of those at Chelsea, and I am enjoying football.

"In the future you never know what can happen but it's good to have teams interested in you because it means you're doing well."
