Barcelona reignite interest in Chelsea defender Alonso

Marcos Alonso

 

Barcelona will make another move for Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso in the coming months it has been revealed.

The Spaniard fell behind Ben Chilwell in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge towards the end of the season.

He could leave the London club this summer in search of a new challenge and more game time.

According to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo (via Daily Mail), Barcelona will soon make another move for Alonso.

They tried to sign the left-back on loan in January but failed to get a deal over the line.

 

Chelsea bosses didn’t want the player to leave in case new manager Thomas Tuchel was a fan of his talents.

They could now allow the 30-year-old to secure an exit after Chilwell was selected to start in the Champions League final win over Manchester City.

The report goes on to state that Barca’s move also failed due to the situation of Junior Firpo.

They weren’t able to offload him in January, although a summer move to the Premier League is now likely.

Such a transfer would create space for Alonso in Ronald Koeman’s squad in time for next term.

Barca’s lack of transfer funds has been heavily reported in recent months. They’ve focused on free transfers to bolster the team, with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia arriving for nothing.

Alonso is contracted at Chelsea until June 2023, so the Catalan giants won’t be able to sign him for free.
