While the FC Barcelona board continues to work to lower the wage bill and sign up Jules Koundé, Marcos Alonso is still waiting to finalize his signing for Barça. As confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, his arrival is a matter of days
Further of the demora to inscribe to Jules Koundé, the FC Barcelona trusts to close the signing of Marcos Alonso in brief. The doubts on the future of Alejandro Balde and the poor level showed by Jordi Alba in the debut in LaLiga in front of the Ray Vallecano give the character of urgency to the signing of a left-handed side and the '3' of Chelsea is the option number 1 of the directive from does several weeks.
In this sense, the journalist Fabrizio Romano ensures that the signing of the Spanish is fact, but will have to expect to that the Barça inscribe to Koundé. However, at all it would have changed in the verbal agreement that the managerial culé reached with the agent of the player of 31 years, Fali Ramadini, which guarantees an agreement by three seasons, until June of 2025. According to Romano, the parts agreed the traspaso four months ago, in the middle of the 2021-22.
Nothing Have changed about Marcos Alonso deal. Full, verbal agreement in place to join Barcelona but it won't be completed until Jules Koundé is registered. It takes time. 🚨🇪🇸 #FCB— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 17, 2022

Like this, the signing could close the next week by around 8 million euros, 4 'kilos' less than his value of current market in Transfermarkt. Thomas Tuchel already confirmed the past week that Marcos was trying to transact his exit, reason whereby was not summoned for the party of the Sunday in front of the Tottenham. However, the demora in the negotiation with the Barça has done that the side return this week to the trainings with the 'blues'.
In addition to the registration of Koundé, the arrival of Alonso would be supeditada to the exit of several players of the staff culé. With Memphis Depay, Martin Braithwaite and Samuel Umtiti still without resolving his traspasos, the time begins to constrain in Catalonia and the club, maybe, will have to do without players that in principle were not transferibles, as it is the case of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Marcos Alonso will expect by the Barça
Conscious of the financial actuality culé, the Madrilenian will expect until last moment to add to the group directed by Xavi Hernández. The negotiations between 'descartes' and possible sales could extend even until 31 August, by which at all can take for granted to two weeks of the end of the market. What if it seems a fact is that the arrival of Marcos Alonso will force to Alejandro Balde to leave yielded, as Jordi Alba will not move of the club.
