Marcos Alonso has been playing constantly in the Blues side since Ben Chilwell’s knee injury, but Alonso is still a ‘dream left-back’ for Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone.
Atletico Madrid tried to sign Alonso back in 2019 Under Frank Lampard before signing their current left-back Renan Lodi, but a report claim Simeone side could be set to re-start their interest.
Presently, Alonso is Thomas Tuchel’s only option at left wing-back, and therefore it’s doubtful that Chelsea would grant a move this month.
Alonso’s contract in Chelsea will be expiring in 18 months and the Blues may cash in at the end of the season to avoid losing him on free transfer.
Lille left-back Reinildo Mandava, who attracted Atletico Madrid from the La Liga champions.
The 28-year-old Reinildo Mandava from Mozambique is said to be out-of-contract at the end of this season, with Atletico Madrid sniffing around him.
But it’s Alonso who is still top of Simeone’s wish-list for signing.
