Azpilicueta open to Chelsea move
Olympique Marseille defender Cesar Azpilicueta insists there has been no approach from Chelsea as yet but he would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge if a bid was lodged.
Azpilicueta has been frequently linked with a £12 million transfer to Andre Villas-Boas' side and the Spanish right-back said he would be happy to join a "great club" to help boost his chances of playing for the national team.
The 22-year-old, who is yet to win a senior cap for Spain, is aware of the reports linking him the Blues, but will not be unsettled by the rumours.
"There has been no contact, and I am still bound to OM until 2014," Azpilicueta told L'Equipe. "Now, if the leaders of Chelsea want me, they should first discuss that with OM. If a proposal comes, I will think about it.
"It is more difficult to start in the national team when you do not play at a great club. You have to be at Real Madrid or Barcelona. But I feel good today at OM."
Azpilicueta joined Marseille from Osasuna in 2010 and has made 45 appearances for Didier Deschamps' side since
