Barcelona are close to agreeing a deal to sign Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta and they remain interested in his teammate Andreas Christensen.
All three centre-backs are allowed to speak with foreign clubs over a pre-contract agreement as all parties mull over their options.
He claimed the Catalan outfit have offered the 32-year-old a two-year contract to join in the summer.
And they also want to land Danish centre-back Christensen as the club looks to rebuild under club legend Xavi.
Romano posted on Twitter: “Barcelona are working to sign Cesar Azpilicueta as free agent in June. Talks on – contract proposed until 2024 with potential option, as per @10JoseAlvarez. Chelsea are still waiting for César to communicate his decision,” said Romano.
“Barca are also interested in Andreas Christensen.”
The Spanish defender joined Chelsea from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille in the summer of 2012 and has featured 455 times during his ten-year spell at the club.
Meanwhile, Christensen has been part of the Chelsea first-team squad since the 2017/18 campaign.
He’s proved vital to the Blues over the years, despite periods in and out of the first-team.
He replaced Thiago Silva in the 39th minute in last season’s Champions League final win over Manchester City.
