FC Barcelona has not sold or yielded any footballer yet, although there are some who are clear candidates to leave the club in one way or another because they are not available. It is the case of Junior
Firpo, left-handed winger who is the usual substitute for George
Alba and whom Barça considers one of the footballers who will be safe in the coming weeks. And since the Barça club is already clear that the former Betis will end up leaving, it has already started to probe the market and see what it offers to replace him. And one of the names that offers more guarantees and that has been liked for a long time in the technical secretariat is Marcos
Alonso (30 years old), Chelsea left-back, who has a contract with the London club until 2023 but is not a regular starter in the ‘blue’ team.
In fact, Barça’s interest in Marcos
Alonso It is not new and has experienced different episodes in recent months. The Barça club already reached an agreement with him to incorporate him last winter market when they tried to give way to Junior. Barça reached an agreement with Marcos, who did not count at all for his coach, Frank
Lampard, to arrive on loan to the Barça club until the end of the season. However, in the end Junior he stayed and it was not necessary to activate that operation.
Again on the agenda culé
However, the possibility of Junior leaving is recurrent in the market windows of the Barça and that is why in the current one he has re-linked with various clubs. And in that scenario, the name of Marcos
Alonso has reappeared in relation to the FC Barcelona. In fact, from his surroundings Barça has been warned that the Madrid player is still there for the work of dressing as a Barça player. And from FC Barcelona this predisposition of the side of the Chelsea and they have spoken with their agents about how their arrival could be articulated if they finally bet on him as a replacement for Junior.
In fact, as we have already mentioned, Barça had laid the foundations for a loan agreement with Marcos
Alonso for the last winter market, but it was a management initiated during the mandate of Bartomeu and finished off during the electoral campaign and with the manager taking the reins of the club. Therefore, now it would be necessary to update that agreement and find the formula to convince Chelsea, although that was already on track last summer.
He is no longer in the English club Lampard Y Marcos has a little more prominence with Thomas
Tuchel on the bench, although he is still a substitute for Ben
Chilwell. Therefore, the Madrid side would not put too many impediments to leave the London club.
Barça is not the only club that has been interested in Marcos
Alonso. He too Inter from Milan, which has moved by George
Alba, He has him on his agenda for possible reinforcements since his situation at Chelsea is not what he would like. The Madrid winger ends his contract in 2023 and given his versatility, he is a footballer who could fit in at Barça. A long-range winger with a good footing, he can also act as a center-back given his good ball output and his size (1.88 meters), which makes him a guarantee in the passing game.
