Chelsea target Azpilicueta says goodbye to Marseille

21 August 2012 12:22

Cesar Azpilicueta expects to complete his move from Marseille to Chelsea soon and has thanked the French club's fans for their support.

The right-back is reportedly on the verge of finalising a 7.9 million-pound transfer to Stamford Bridge and the Spaniard hailed the deal as a good one for all concerned.

"Everyone thinks it's been a tough time for me with my thoughts spilt between Marseille and Chelsea," Azpilicueta told Le Provence.

"If my departure can help Marseille's finances, then it is a good deal for everyone concerned."

The 22-year-old, formerly of Osasuna, appeared to say goodbye to the Ligue 1 side's supporters after his part in their 2-0 victory over Sochaux on Sunday.

"I thank the club's fans for their standing ovation," Azpilicueta said.

"They have always been good to me to me, even when things haven't gone well."

Branislav Ivanovic played at right-back for Chelsea against Wigan on Sunday and scored but the club are a man down in the position after Jose Bosingwa's release at the end of his contract.

The Portuguese has since joined Queens Park Rangers.
