Not content with having already finished the incorporation of four players (Eric García, Depay, Emerson and Agüero) to face his second stage in the club, Joan Laporta is working reliably to seal another link apart from those already mentioned, an incorporation that, in turn, would be a very big blow for Chelsea and Real Madrid: Marcos Alonso.
The Spanish footballer -formed in the white house- has been a couple of campaigns with a very residual participation in the Chelsea and that is why it is seriously evaluating the possibility of changing the scene this summer, despite having a contract with the London entity until 2023. The arrivals of Emerson Palmieri, first, and Ben Chilwell, later, have deprived him of taking the prominence he had in his first years at Stamford Bridge and he unquestionably monopolized with some extremely outstanding performances.
Now, with 30 years, FC Barcelona has fixed its eyes on him to try to reinforce a left lane that, with the exits of Juan Miranda and Junior Firpo, has been left unprotected, and things could get worse if finally specifies the signing of Jordi Alba by Inter Milan. So that, Far from waiting for the end of the Eurocup to start the rest of the operations that Joan Laporta has in mind, in the last hours he has accelerated this business to seal it as soon as possible and avoid a major case on the left side.
Junior’s departure to the Leeds United, Marcos Alonso would arrive to be an alternative to the Catalan footballer and to dose the efforts of this in the scheme of Ronald Koeman, although there is no doubt that, if the Hospitalet de Llobregat remains in the club to monopolize the majority of minutes in that position due to the good performance that he has been leaving in recent months, both with Barça and with the Spanish team.
According to various English media, The operation could close at around 12 million euros and with a three-year contract: coup d’état and green light from Abramóvich? Only that step is missing to finalize the operation.
