Marcos Alonso uncertain of his future at Chelsea

Marcos Alonso recently disclosed a move away from Chelsea may be on the cards amid reported interest from his former club Real Madrid.

 

Alonso, 28, only signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge last October, however, he has struggled to nail a place in Sarri’s starting XI.

The Spanish press has linked the former Bolton trainee to Los Blancos where he came through the youth ranks.

Alonso could be involved in Chelsea’s game against Arsenal in the final of the UEFA Europa League in Baku on Wednesday.

Asked by the Evening Standard if he was happy at Chelsea in light of Real’s interest, Alonso said: “I am very happy here but we will see what happens this summer.

“There is always talk [like this]. Is it a compliment? Yes. It means I’m doing well if other teams are trying to get in touch.

Gareth Bale didn’t live up to expectations: Calderon

Ramon Calderon says that Gareth Bale hasn’t been able to justify a place at Real Madrid as the Welsh winger continues to be linked...

“But first of all, I’m focusing on the final. I am very happy to have four more years here and hopefully, I will stay many more years here.”

Alonso was a key member of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea team that won the Premier League in 2016-17, performing well as a left wing-back.

But since Sarri changed Chelsea’s formation to a 4-3-3 this season, Alonso has been restricted to a left-back role.
