Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta could be offered a return to Spain if he loses his place to rising star Reece James.

James is in Frank Lampard’s first-team plan and he is expected to put Azpilicueta under pressure.

Therefore, the 30-year-old may have to find a new club if he wants to play regular football.
