Xavi intends to sign Marcos Alonso from Chelsea after becoming the new Barcelona boss.
Marcos Alonso contributed a lot to Chelsea’s success in the last decade. He has featured in 200 games for the Blues, winning Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup.
Marcos Alonso is currently suffering from a lack of game time at Chelsea.
Despite being a long-serving player, he has fallen in the pecking order in the last few seasons. Under Frank Lampard, he only played a handful of games, and while his rate of appearances improved under current manager Thomas Tuchel, he isn’t a guaranteed starter.
The inclusion of Ben Chilwell in the team and his row of incredible performances have only made the situation tougher for the Spanish player.
It is believed that after the surprise return of club legend Dani Alves to the squad, new manager Xavi Hernández is looking to strengthen his left flank.
The Catalan club has Jordi Alba in that position, but Xavi intends to provide him with a competitor to bolster his performance and increase the depth in the squad.
