Chelsea have received an offer from Real Madrid for Eden and Marcos Alonso as the Los Blancos hope to make a last-minute move for both players.
The Blues have obviously rejected Lopetegui’s offer for the Belgian star as Sarri said in his pre-match conference on Friday that the player is not for sale.
However, according to the Sun, the Blues are yet to decide over Alonso’s future as the media outlet revealed that Abramovic is willing to negotiate a deal with the Galacticos for the Spanish defender as long as they bid an offer not less than £60m.
If the Blues must win the League this season, they must turn deaf ear to Madrid’s offer for the 27-year-old due to his qualities.
Alonso is surely one of the best left-back in the world, he is solid at the back while his overlapping run to join the attack is nothing short of brilliant.
He has a great threat from dead-balls as he possesses awesome techniques while taking free kicks.
Apart from having wonderful composure against top strikers, the Spaniard is strong in the air and that has helped him deals with free kicks or corner kicks played towards the Blues goal.
Alonso is not just good at defending, he is also scoring goals too. Since joined the Blues from Fiorentina in 2016, the defender has found the back of the net in 14 occasions to prove his prowess when it comes to slotting the ball past the goalies.
