There will be an agreement with Chelsea after the signing of Cucurella and he will sign for two seasons plus one
The footballer is warned, since the priority is now to register new recruits
Marcos Alonso will be a Barca player. The signing is already well advanced, although the winger could arrive once the League has started. The operation will end with a transfer, which should be less than 10 million euros and the footballer will sign for the Blaugrana club for two seasons, with the option of a third depending on what will have been discussed with his entourage. Despite everything, it is very likely that the announcement will come once the championship has started because the priority is now to register the players already signed and to release the players who do not count for the free numbers. Marcos Alonso will have to arm himself with a little more patience but it will be Blaugrana.
Barça and Chelsea are making great strides in the transfer of Marcos Alonso and the footballer already has the sporting agreement of his coach, Thomas Tuchel, to leave the London entity. Unlike Azpilicueta, Chelsea have found a guaranteed replacement for the Spanish side and have already announced the signing of Cucurella in a deal they will pay around 55m euros for. From there, the final price of the sale will have to be specified, but it will not be too difficult to find the agreement.
The groundwork for the player’s contract began to be laid during the meeting between his agent, Fali Ramadani, and Mateu Alemany last Wednesday. Marcos Alonso wanted a three-year contract but it looks like it will eventually be two years with an optional third depending on the goals. The winger knows that everything is very advanced and he takes it more calmly than in recent weeks. The arrival of Marcos Alonso will lead to the departure of Baldé, who could be loaned to a first division team.
