The owners of Chelsea travelled to Barcelona the past Thursday with the reason to work in the folders that both clubs have opened on the table. The meeting would have been positive and the names of Marcos Alonso and César Azpilicueta were mentioned, since they form part of the selecto group of footballers that wishes to incorporate Xavi Hernández of face to the 2022/23.

As it aims the newspaper 'Sportive World', the group londinense is had to go out of both players as long as have spares of guarantees. It is thus that the operations will take more than the expected in this window of traspasos, since Todd Boehly and company will have to achieve his respective reliefs in the weeks to come. Besides, this means that the two international with Spain will have to assist to turns it of the English by United States except an unexpected twist.

The same source ensures that 'Azpi' would be the first in landing in the Spotify Camp Nou. The navarro wanted to close his traspaso to avoid travel to norteamérica but neither was by the work of presionar to Chelsea, with the one who still has a year of agreement because of his unilateral clause of renewal. With almost a decade in Stamford Bridge and with the strip of captain in his arm, his aim is to go out of the best possible way by respect to the shield that has defended by so many years.

By his part, Marcos Alonso finishes his bond in 2023 and wants to enjoy the last years of his career near of his family in Spanish territory.

Azpilicueta Would have the place ensured by the right side due to the fact that Sergiño Dest has not showed regularity and Sergi Roberto is going out of an injury. In parallel, Jordi Alba has not had competition inside the staff since Lucas Digne 'changed of airs' in 2018, by what will be a position contested with Marcos. Anyway, his arrivals would bend the positions of the defensive sector and would fulfil with the wishes that Xavi manifested at the end of the past campaign.
