Real Madrid confident of sealing deal for Chelsea star – not Hazard



Real Madrid confident of landing Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso.

The current Champions League holders, Real Madrid have identified Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso as a one of the players who could bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

Alonso who is in his late twenties, had a fantastic season on a personal level with Chelsea despite the club’s failed title defence. He was ever present in the Chelsea team last term, where he made 33 league appearances whilst chalking up seven goals, two assists.

Alonso is a target for Real Madrid given that the club president sees him as a potential cover for Marcello should fatigue, or injury hits the Madrid legend.

Meanwhile, according to a report from Daily Express, the 27 year-old seems to be relaxed amidst all the rumours surrounding him.

The midfielder has denied reports linking him to Real Madrid though, but there is no gainsaying that he could yet leave for his roots, as it is with most Spanish players who are somewhat homesick at some point in their careers.

Chelsea oversaw Manchester United to clinch the FA cup which served as compensation for their poor season that saw them finished fifth behind Liverpool and down to the Europa league for next season.
