Cesar Azpilicueta Set To Join Atletico Madrid on Free Transfer

Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement to sign Cesar Azpilicueta from Chelsea on a free transfer.

The 33-year-old Spanish defender has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the La Liga club, which will keep him at Atletico Madrid until June 2025.

Azpilicueta, who spent 11 years at Chelsea, was linked with a move to Inter Milan. However, recent reports confirmed that he has chosen Atletico Madrid as his next destination.

During his time at Chelsea, Azpilicueta made over 400 appearances, winning numerous domestic and European titles, including two Premier League titles, two Europa League titles, and the UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea have decided to let their former captain leave as a free agent as a gesture of respect for his years of service to the club.
