Thomas Tuchel isn't concerned about the uncertainty about Cesar Azpilicueta's future at Chelsea as the defender's contract expires at the end of the season. The 32-year-old will be leaving Stamford Bridge next summer when his contract expires as he does not yet require an extension in the capital. Clubs in Spain, including Barcelona, ​​are monitoring his situation while Azpilicueta has reportedly briefed his representatives in an attempt to find a new club that offers him the best chance of making the 2022 Spanish World Cup squad. Chelsea are expected to offer him a new deal, but talks about a new deal are still pending. Asked about the Spaniard's future in west London, Tuchel is not concerned about his contract situation which will allow him to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club from January 1st. Speaking to the official Chelsea website about his contract situation, Tuchel said: "I don't see a problem here. The situation between Azpi, me and the club is very clear. He's our captain. He's a fantastic captain and a fantastic player." Azpilicueta has made several appearances this season, moving from central defense to right full-back. "If there are weeks when he doesn't play as much as in the last few weeks, there are a few reasons," added Tuchel the team is very strong in his positions with Trevoh (Chalobah) and Andreas (Christensen) and as full-back with Reecey (James). If there's one player who knows it's Azpi. I don't see any signs that we should worry. "
