Confirmed! Premier League star Azpilicueta delighted after signing big Chelsea deal

Cesar Azpilicueta has signed a new contract with Chelsea until 2022, and has admitted he is delighted with the new deal.

The 29-year-old defender, signed from Marseille for £7m in the summer of 2012, has made 298 appearances for Chelsea and has established himself as one of the first names on Maurizio Sarri’s teamsheet.

His versatility along the back-line has been a huge asset for the Blues over the seasons and although there has been some speculation Sarri is looking to buy a new full-back in the coming transfer windows, Azpilicueta remains a big part of the Italians plans.

And after signing the new contract at Stamford Bridge, the defender told the club website: “‘I am really happy to extend my stay here at Chelsea.

“Since I came, I felt the joy and responsibility to play for this club, these fans, and every time I go on the pitch I try do my best.

“Hopefully there is a lot to come and we can keep Chelsea where it belongs.”

Does Azpilicueta deserve his new contract?

There are some big egos at Chelsea and a few more players that take all the headlines, but Azpilicueta gives his all for Chelsea whenever he puts on that shirt and fully deserves the big new contract.

He is a solid, quality Premier League defender and when he is on top of his game, there are not too many full-backs in Europe that are better than the Spaniard.

Chelsea fans will be very happy with this news.
