crazy ball – Chelsea are open to selling Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta amid interest from Barcelona, but there is a price to pay for the transfers of the two Spaniards, according to reports.
The Catalan giants have been very active in the transfer window this summer, bringing in five new players with the signings of Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Jules Konde.
But manager Xavi Hernandez is still in the market for a new full-back as he only has Sergino Dest and Jordi Alba as natural full-backs and Barcelona are now trying to address this issue.
They hoped to do so with Chelsea duo Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta, with both Spaniards also said to be keen to return to their country and join the Catalan giants.
Media Sport It is now being reported that there has been a meeting between Chelsea owner Todd Boehly and Barcelona officials, with West London officials revealing the asking price for the two players, which is IDR 379 billion.
It’s just that La Liga apparently have no intention of paying the high fee because Marcos Alonso is 31 years old and Cesar Azpilicueta is 32 years old. Apart from this, both also have one year left on their contracts and have asked to leave London.
More reports from Mundo Deportivo said Barcelona were delighted the two Spaniards had committed to joining them at Camp Nou and said manager Thomas Tuchel would allow them to leave if Chelsea managed to find a replacement at Stamford Bridge.
