But Nou Camp giants Barca are increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress in the defender’s attempt to talk his way out of the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

Azpilicueta, 32, is reluctant to join Chelsea after ten years there because of his love and loyalty.

During that time he has won all sorts of club trophies at national and European level.

Chelsea have the right to keep him on a 12-month extension clause in his contract and could force him to stay.

Boss Thomas Tuchel said the pair will sit down and discuss their future but Barcelona want the deal to be finalized quickly.

Barcelona coach Xavi is keen to see the experienced right-back available for pre-season training next month.

The Spanish side have threatened to find “other solutions” to the void left by the departure of club legend Dani Alves, who has confirmed he is leaving for the second time.

Azpilicueta is said to be in talks with Tuchel in the coming days to seek an amicable separation agreement.
