‘He Must Leave’ ‘Couldn’t He Have Waited’ Fans Not Happy With Chelsea Defender After Refusing To Rule Out Exit

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso says he is flattered by reports linking with a move to Real Madrid.

Although he insisted that he is content to stay at Stamford Bridge, the Spaniard refused to rule out a move this summer:

‘I am very happy here but we will see what happens this summer. There is always talk (like this). Is it a compliment? Yes. It means I’m doing well if other teams are trying to get in touch.”

“But first of all, I’m focussing on the final. I am very happy to have four more years here and hopefully, I will stay many more years here.”

Understandably, fans on Twitter were not too happy with Alonso’s comments, particularly as they have come only a few days before the Europa League final against Arsenal:

Alonso only signed a new five-year contract back in October which makes the comments all the more surprising.

The 28-year-old did hint at possible friction with manager Maurizio Sarri by stating that his form has dipped partly because of a change in role under the Italian.

Still, making such comments in a build up to a major European final certainly isn’t helpful. Alonso has barely featured for Chelsea in Europe this season and it is expected that Emerson Palmieri will start at left back in Baku.
