Marcos Alonso’s days at FC Barcelona are numbered

In an unexpected turn of events, FC Barcelona’s veteran left-back Marcos Alonso will leave the club at the end of the 2023/24 season, according to close sources. Despite his vast experience and impressive record, the 32-year-old struggled to secure a prominent place in the starting XI under Xavi.

This season Alonso has only taken part in seven games, four of which were in La Liga and three in the Champions League. His role in the team has been downgraded as he does not occupy a prominent place in the left-back position, nor does he stand out in the plans of the Catalan strategist, who is considering him more in defensive roles in the center of the field.

Marcos Alonso is not important at FC Barcelona

Although Barcelona have the option to extend Alonso’s contract for another 12 months, reports suggest the player will opt for a free transfer at the end of the season. Saudi clubs have expressed interest in signing him during the January transfer window, but the Spanish defender is expected to fulfill his commitment at the Camp Nou until the end of the season.

With a career that has spanned from Real Madrid to Chelsea, Alonso joined Barcelona in the summer of 2022 and quickly integrated, appearing in 37 games last season. Although Manchester United considered signing him last summer, the club ultimately chose Sergio Reguilón.

Alonso’s departure would mark the end of a spell at Barcelona, ​​and his legacy includes notable contributions at Chelsea, where he played a crucial role in winning Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and UEFA Super Cup titles as well as the club played World Cup. Despite his impending departure, coach Xavi’s praise underlines Alonso’s contribution and professionalism to the Catalan team.
