Thomas Tuchel Gives Update on Marcos Alonso Transfer Rumour to Barcelona
The manager of Chelsea Football Club, Thomas Tuchel has given an update on the future of Marcos Alonso’s transfer rumour to Barcelona.
The German was speaking at a press confereNumber One ter the Blues victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday, August 6th, 2022. According to the manager, the player asked that he should be left out of the fixture against Everton as he looks to focus on his move to Barcelona. The Catalonia club are set to pay at least €10 million for Alonso.
That is the case, he tries to leave and we agreed to this switch, and that is why it would have made sense to have him on the pitch today. It is the right thing to do.
Barcelona have shown interest in the player for some months but Chelsea have stalled on the deal because of their inability to sign a replacement for him when he leaves the club. However, Chelsea approved the deal after they completed the deal of Marc Cucurella from Brighton and Hove Albion.
