Xavi Hernández has clear that Marcos Alonso is his main option to bring competition to the left side. In spite of that the season of Jordi Alba has been correct, the true is that in the staff does not exist any spare of guarantees that offer a solution in front of any eventuality. It is thus that the Barcelona already have communicated to the own Madrilenian that the interest in purchasing his services is total.

However, Chelsea still has not pronounced in this regard, since the defender has a valid agreement until June of 2023.
