Memphis Depay blocks Xavi’s favourite: Jordi Alba celebrates
A rollercoaster going to be the last hours of the market at Barca. Still with several issues to resolve regarding the exit section with people like Aubameyang, Memphis Depay or especially Martin Braithwaite as protagoniststhe transfer plan has not been closed much less because Joan Laporta continues to show excessive ambition and he still dreams of incorporating some other piece for the Barça squad.
And now there is a total turnaround again around a figure that seemed completely discarded but that jumps back to the fore because his signing has been reactivated. Is about Marcos Alonso, the Chelsea winger, of which, according to the Chain Cope be back in these last moments of the transfer market very much in the orbit of Fútbol Club Barcelona. In Don Balon We have been reporting promptly on all the movements that have taken place between the Barca and the Spanish player, and we already told that he was very close but that recently everything cooled down to the point that in Barcelona they went for other alternatives, but now everything has heated up a lot again. Xavi Hernandez wants to reinforce that position in which he has made it clear that Jordi Alba does not count and he needs an imminent signing.
The possibility that Marcos Alonso ended up joining the Barça team at the last minute and has grown considerably. In fact, in the Chelsea his current coach, Thomas Tuchel, prefers to keep him in the ‘fridge’ and still hasn’t called him up for the London team’s games. The last sample has occurred on this day during the week, in which the defender was once again left out of the call and has not been called up even once so far this year with the rest of his teammates to play a game of PremierLeague.
In London it follows taking his departure to Barcelona for granted and Tuchel wanted to adapt the team from the first moment to get used to the idea that he will not have him throughout the season. The player also wants to leave but Joan Laporta continues to find himself in financial difficulties, so he urgently needs any of the three discarded, Braithwaite, Aubameyang or Memphis Depay, to leave Barça to lighten salary mass and in this way to be able to present a formal offer for Mark Alonso. First leave and then enter, in that order, the needs of the Catalans and what the signing of Marcos Alonso depends on, because the agreement is total.
