Chelsea defender Alonso rejected for Barcelona move to Atletico

Premier League Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso , 31, is reportedly keen to join Barcelona before the transfer window closes this summer, and has recently turned down an offer from Atletico Madrid.

Since Alonso signed a five-year deal from Serie A Fiorentina for £23m in 2016, the Spanish defender has played more than 150 games for Chelsea, scoring 29 goals and providing 23 assists. At the same time, he helped the team win the Europa League, FA Cup, English Premier League, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Super Cup during these six years, and won the World Cup last year.

However, his output in the past six years has not improved significantly, and his position in Chelsea’s lineup is also flickering. And with the addition of 24-year-old defender Marc Cucurella, Alonso’s place in the lineup will also disappear. This also prompted Alonso to have the idea of leaving, and he found the next stop in his future football career – Barcelona.

However, it is understood that Barcelona is not interested in introducing Alonso in the transfer window this summer. However, this still cannot extinguish the enthusiasm of the veteran defender who is eager to transfer to Barcelona. He decisively rejected the solicitation of Atletico Madrid.

Atletico are keen to sign the veteran Chelsea defender because 24-year-old defender Renan Lodi is about to leave the team for Nottingham Forest this summer, so signing a new defender is imminent, and Alonso It is a reliable ideal candidate. However, with Alonso’s resignation, Atletico Madrid also invested in the introduction of the 25-year-old defender Sergio Reguilon of Tottenham Hotspur in a short period of time. It is reported that the two sides have reached a transfer agreement. Reguilon joins Atletico Madrid just around the corner.

Transfer talks between the two sides have remained stalled in recent weeks as Barcelona’s attitude to signing Alonso has cooled, and it is expected that the transfer work may not be completed before the transfer window closes this summer.
