According to a report, a Chelsea player has made an official request he wants to leave Stamford Bridge this summer
However, he has been part of Thomas Tuchel’s squad and plays an important role at the club since he joined
The 31-years-old has asked to leave Chelsea this summer – although the left-back hasn’t handed in a formal transfer request.
That’s according to 90min, who claim that Emerson Palmieri will be brought back to the club to replace him as Ben Chilwell’s understudy
It’s a funny one as formal transfer requests are pretty meaningless now.
If he’s asked the club to leave, that is a transfer request.
They have no legal weight, so all they are is effectively a petition to the club to inform them of the player’s intentions.
Either way, it makes sense for Marcus Alonso to go this summer after 6 years at the club.
He played a lot this season but only because of Chilwell’s injury, and all that playing time made Thomas Tuchel more aware than ever of his limitations.
He did at least get to sign off in style, scoring against Leicester on Thursday night with a lovely left-footed volley.
Dmtloaded understood, that Marcus Alonso is keen to return to Spain, and Barcelona is likely his next club
The source claims talks as already started between the Barca board and Alonso’s representative
Chelsea already had a lot of options to replace him next season if he finally leaves the club has he asked
Moreover, his deal with Chelsea will expire in 2023 and it will be ok to cash him now rather than leaving as a free agent next season
