The negotiations between Real Madrid and Chelsea will be in full fruition in multiple potential transfers involving both clubs.
In what’s been a sub-standard season for Real with hopes of retaining the La Liga title slipping away, a quarter-final clash against Juventus in the Champions League and out of the Copa del Rey, things haven’t gone according to plan for Los Blancos.
This has been a concern for club president Florentino Perez who is ready to have an overhaul of the team squad in the summer. Real captain Sergio Ramos has given Perez some advice over signing one player at Chelsea.
Instead of the player in question being Thibaut Courtois or Eden Hazard, Ramos has convinced the club’s hierarchy to sign Marcos Alonso, Don Balon reports via the Express.
The Spanish news outlet reports that Perez has set aside £52m in hopes of offering Alonso a return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Alonso was a youth product at the Spanish giants but failed to develop into a first team player there. The left-wing-back has been impressive since joining Chelsea in 2016 but the Blues may be reluctant in letting a valued asset depart and would leave us short in this position.
