Spanish defender César Azpilicueta renewed his contract with Chelsea for two more seasons on Thursday, a commitment that ends the rumors about his possible signing for FC Barcelona.
"César Azpilicueta has signed a new contract with Chelsea, to continue what is already a decade of blue for another two years," the London team said in a statement.

The Spanish international was on the list of names that sounded strong to continue reinforcing a very active Barça in the market. However, Azpilicueta finally stays at a Chelsea of which he is captain and to which he arrived in 2012.

During this decade at Stamford Bridge, Azpilicueta has contributed to creating one of the most successful periods in Chelsea's history, with two Premier Leagues, one FA Cup, one League Cup, one Champions League, two Europa Leagues, one Super Cup Europe and a FIFA Club World Cup among his successes.
