Chelsea’s Spanish trio of Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and Cesar Azpilicueta are being eyed up by Barcelona.

Jose Mourinho has indicated that none of the three will be regulars this season at Stamford Bridge.

And reports in Spain suggest Barcelona are monitoring the situation at Stamford Bridge ahead of the January transfer window.

Torres scored against Swindon last night, but he appears to be behind Samuel Eto’o in the pecking order under Mourinho.

And having publicly admitted Oscar is his preferred No 10, Mata may also see reduced game-time this season.

Azpilicueta is yet to start a Premier League game since Mourinho’s return, with Athletic Bilbao tracking the right-back.

While the trio all started during Chelsea’s win at Swindon last night, playing in cup games only would hurt their chances of making Spain’s World Cup squad next summer.

Mata reportedly came close to joining Paris Saint-Germain on deadline day, while Valencia were linked with a late loan move for Torres.

And Barcelona could move for the pair in the New Year should they continue to be sidelined at Chelsea, while Azpilicueta is viewed as potential cover at the Nou Camp.

However, any negotiations between the two clubs could be scuppered by Mourinho’s intense dislike for the Catalan giants.
