Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta signs new contract until 2022

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has signed a new four-year deal, extending his stay at the club to 2022.

The 29-year-old Spain international has made 298 appearances since arriving from Ligue 1 side Marseille in 2012, in a transfer package worth an initial £6m.

Azpilicueta, who has won the Premier League twice with Chelsea, has captained the Stamford Bridge side in the league this season.

He has also won the FA Cup, League Cup, and the 2013 Europa League under Rafa Benitez.

“Since I came, I felt the joy and responsibility to play for this club, these fans,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea’s official website.

“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.”

Azpilicueta’s previous deal was due to expire in 2020 after he signed a three-and-a-half-year contract extension in 2016.
