Barcelona is aspiring to invest in a left-back to add contention in this post heading for next season. The club is seeking a player to contend with Jordi Alba for the regular spot, and multiple candidates are being examined by the club’s sporting management.
Almost every summer, Marcos Alonso is connected with a come back to Spain, with Barcelona supposedly “working” on a prospective agreement although he’s one of 3-4 “candidates” for the left place for them — at least, that’s the statement from the guy whose livelihood relies solely on making such statements relentlessly, as Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports the left-back is inclined on a transfer to the Camp Nou.
Alonso’s present Chelsea term has merely one year left on it, however, he’s lately proclaimed that Chelsea is his home and heart club, and he’s also talked about what we really need to achieve next season to contend for the title.
In 41 outings in all competitions this season, the 31-year-old has four goals and five assists. That illustrates Thomas Tuchel’s faith in the previous Fiorentina player. The Blues, on the other hand, would be unable to gain from much of the Spaniard’s abilities because Barcelona is keen to sign him. The Blaugrana are investigating three to four alternatives, notably the Chelsea full-back.
Alonso has revived as a crucial player this campaign as a consequence of Ben Chilwell’s injury, but he is now 31, which implies that if he desires a long-term contract, he’ll have to go elsewhere. So while it’s not unthinkable that Barcelona may acquire him (along with Christensen and Azpilicueta), this appears to be little more than a rumour at this moment.
Alonso’s current deal will expire in 2023. This implies if he does not accept a new contract by the conclusion of the calendar year, he will be free to explore a move to some other club. In conjunction with Barca, it looks that other La Liga clubs are intrigued by Chelsea’s defenders this summer. Antonio Rudiger is allegedly set to join Real Madrid as a free agent, while Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta have both been associated with a move to Barcelona in recent months.
