Cesar Azpilicueta


Recommended Posts

This is from the scouting report We Aint' Got No History put up of him:

"The papers are linking us heavily to a very reasonably priced £12 million January move for the young Spaniard, but I personally just don't see it happening. With Marseille reaching the knockout rounds of the Champions League and drawing a very beatable Inter side I just can't see that they have the financial need to sell at that price. They also have to give a portion of any future transfer fee to his former club, so it's not as if the club will be making a killing on this deal.

Marseille are also in a position where they need to play well in the second half in order to play any sort of European football next season. In this regard selling Azpilicueta will likely be extremely damaging. Because of these two factors I'd really be surprised to see Azpilicueta on the move for anything near the prices being mentioned this month. This screams of the type of deal we could pull off in June but will not be seeing mid-season."

Makes sense really. I didn't realize Marseille was still in the UCL.
