Real Madrid are reportedly looking into signing Chelsea forward Eden Hazard but also hold a long-standing interest in Blues left-back Marcos Alonso as well.
Despite the Spaniard having a pretty poor season at Stamford Bridge, it seems he has admirers at the Bernabeu as a summer move is talked up by AS.
The report admits that a deal for Alonso could be a bit more complicated than one for Hazard due to the players’ respective contract situations, but one imagines Chelsea fans would be pretty pleased if they could offload the 28-year-old.
Having initially shone as a wing-back in Antonio Conte’s system that saw Chelsea stroll to the Premier League title in 2016/17, Alonso has since gone downhill, particularly after being moved into a more orthodox left-back position by new manager Maurizio Sarri this season.
It could be that the former Fiorentina man would do better back in his native Spain, as he is perhaps in need of a fresh start after becoming rather unpopular with his current fans.
