Chelsea Not Ready To Let Go Of The Defender Due To Closure Of Market
Chelsea has been reported to have revealed the price tag for their defender, Marcos Alonso, to Real Madrid.
According to Tuttosport, The Los Blacos have been told that the Spanish left-back won’t cost less than €60 million.
The Italian newspaper claimed that Madrid are currently not ready to pay the fee for the 27-year-old and the Blues are not open to sell Alonso now.
The report also claimed that the West London club doesn’t want Alonso to leave Stamford Bridge because the transfer window in Premier League has closed already and Chelsea don’t have any chance to sign a replacement if the defender joins the Santiago Bernabeu club.
However, things could change next summer when Juventus could make a new attempt to sign Marcelo from Real Madrid.
Tuttosport claimed that if Juventus signs Marcelo for a fee close to €50million, then Madrid would accept to pay €60million to sign Alonso from Chelsea.
The transfer window for La Liga will close this Friday.
