‘Sell Him For A Mug Of Coffee’ ‘Can We Give Them The 40m?’ Fans Disappointed As Spanish Side Baulk At Chelsea Star’s Asking Price

Atletico Madrid will not meet Chelsea’s €40m asking price for Marcos Alonso, according to reports in the Spanish media.

The La Liga side are believed to be keen on signing the left-back this summer, but they will only make a move if the Blues lower their demands.

With Alonso unlikely to force through a transfer after signing a new contract back in October, the fullback could well stay put this summer.

After the defender’s poor performances last season, as well as suggestions that he would be open to a move back to Spain, fans on Twitter believe Chelsea should lower their asking price:

Alonso’s future likely depends on who the next manager is. Currently, the Blues have Emerson Palmieri, Kenedy, Jay Dasilva and even Baba Rahman who can play left back so offloading Alonso wouldn’t necessarily weaken the left-hand side.

However, the next man in charge may still favour the Spaniard as first choice, and the club will likely not sanction any sale until a new head coach is in place.
