As reported by the daily mark, the Atletico Madrid has revived his interest in Mark Alonso ahead of next season with the need to reinforce their lanes for a campaign where they hope to once again be a candidate for the La Liga title and transcend in the UEFA Champions League.
Diego Pablo Simeone still dreams of signing the 31-year-old left-back as he has yet to find an ideal replacement for Filipe Luis since his departure in 2019, after almost a decade at the club with a short slot by Chelsea in the middle.
A market opportunity
Marca’s report states that Marcos Alonso would be willing to return to Spain as he would still like to play in La Liga, which he did exactly once, his only appearance for Real Madrid in 2009-10. After that time he played in Serie A and in the Premier League.
The Spaniard will have one year left on his contract after the end of the current season and, as things stand, he remains the only option for the position due to Ben Chilwell’s long-term injury, who will miss the rest of the season. . Chelsea is looking for a new left winger for the campaign that comes with several names sounding strong: Sergiño Dest, Theo Hernández…
If a footballer arrives for the position, Marcos Alonso will ask to leave the club to have the opportunity to be a starter in an important team in Europe. And Atlético de Madrid seems to be the best option, although the possibility that another player may arrive for the position is handled.
Chelsea would only welcome his departure but if they manage to close the addition of a left winger to be able to contain until the recovery of Chilwell, who continues to be the starter for Tuchel.
