Chelsea demands €25m for Barca targets Azpilicueta and Alonso

Wed 03 August 2022 | 12:54

The Catalan club acquired Andreas Christensen from Chelsea on a free transfer this summer and is long interested in bringing the Spanish duo of Chelsea to Nou Camp this summer with both players pushing for a move.

According to

Sport

, as the negotiations between

Chelsea

owner Todd Boehly and the Barcelona hierarchy go on, Chelsea set an asking price of €25m for Marcos Alonso and

Cesar Azpilicueta

. Barcelona has long been in the market for a full-back as they have only Sergiño Dest and Jordi Alba as natural full-backs

The outlet continues to reveal that Barcelona is not willing such a high fee for

Alonso

and Azpilicueta who are respectively 31 and 32 years old and only have a year remaining on their deal and have asked to leave London.

 

Thomas Tuchel earlier criticized

Barcelona's

pursuit of the Spanish duo. However, according to

outlets

, the German coach will reportedly grant the duo their wishes once their replacements are in the building. Although Alonso played regularly in the 2021-22 season in Chilwell’s absence due to injury, the player’s recovery and Emerson’s comeback will put him down on the pecking order.

Meanwhile, the Chelsea captain, Azpilicueta,  who made 476 appearances for the Blues, is adamant to have a new experience as the club doesn’t want to lose their captain on a free transfer next summer. They want to get back the €8 million they paid Marseille in 2012 to sign the player.
