Former Real Madrid Left-Back Marcos Alonso Agrees Personal Terms With Barcelona

Marcos Alonso is expected to return to Spanish club soccer this month after more than 12 years away.

The attacking left-back departed Real Madrid in 2010 and has since played for Bolton, Sunderland, Fiorentina and Chelsea.

Alonso, 31, has been at Chelsea since 2016 but he appears to have no future at Stamford Bridge following Marc Cucurella's summer arrival from Brighton.

According to BILD journalist Christian Falk, Alonso has agreed personal terms with Barcelona, while talks over his transfer fee are ongoing.

It is said that Chelsea are likely to recoup between €5 million and €7m for Alonso, having paid around €28m to Fiorentina for him in 2016.
