Barcelona might approach Chelsea after tonight’s clash so as to discuss with the West London club over the possible transfer of their left wing-back Marcos Alonso who has been brilliant for the Blues since he switched to Stamford Bridge last season.
The Blaugrana are keen to upgrade the quality of their left-back position ahead of the 2018-19 season. Lucas Dinero looks unconvincing while operating from the left-back position for the Catalans and Valverde might cash-in on him in the summer.
According to Don Balon, Barcelona are set to make enquiries about the prospect of signing Alonso from their opponents.
The 27-year-old is surely going to have a busy day later tonight as he will be saddled with the responsibilities of preventing Lionel Messi from finding the back of the net.
It is unlikely that Chelsea would sanction such an important player’s move away from Stamford Bridge irrespective of the offer they receive from Barcelona in the upcoming transfer window.
Having signed Emerson Palmieri from Roma in the January transfer market, Chelsea wouldn’t love to lose another impressive player to any club ahead of next season.
Barcelona was linked with a move for the Blues right wing-back Victor Moses before the start of the current campaign. They could also try to lure the Nigerian international to Camp Nou in the summer.
