Chelsea trio set to stay at the club?

Chelsea star Marcos Alonso says he is not worried about rumours surrounding the futures of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Willian.

The trio have been heavily linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge this summer, with Hazard and Courtois wanted by Real Madrid and Willian a top target of Barcelona’s.

It would be a huge loss to Chelsea if they left the club, with time running out to replace such imposing figures.

However, defender Marcos Alonso says he is looking forward to his team-mates returning to pre-season training when their post World Cup holiday’s are over, potentially hinting that they could be set to stay.

“I am not even thinking about that,” Alonso told Sky Sports when asked about the possibility of the trio leaving.

“They are Chelsea players and I am looking forward to seeing them after their holidays.

“They are top players and very important for us.

“Every season with Chelsea, we have to fight for every competition and every game and we will go for it.”

Alonso also revealed he is happy with the start to life under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

“We are working on some new things: a new formation and a new style,” he added.

“He wants us to press high and he wants the team together for possession of the ball.

“A lot of the things we have just started working [on] but it is looking good.

“I don’t have to run as much as last year! It’s good, more for us to defend and when I can, try and help the team in attack.”
