Spanish defender opens up and announces interest in signing big contract with Chelsea


Marcos Alonso is a man that has been in the headlines, but will he stay or leave Chelsea in the summer.

While opportunities at the beginning of this season were limited by Ben Chilwell’s good form, there have been plenty since the England international’s knee injury and he has been enjoying his time

However, there has been a feeling that he will not get that much game time when Chilwell comes back to the club, and there are a number of clubs interested in his services.

But, now that he is playing and getting the minutes he wants, he now would like to extend his stay beyond the summer of 2023.

In an open interview at the team’s hotel in Abu Dhabi ahead of the Club World Cup final against Palmeiras, Alonso provided his version of events from the incident that led to him being jettisoned from the then head coach’s plans.

“I watched the game upstairs and with five minutes to go they [West Brom security] told me I cannot be here so I went downstairs to the changing room,” he said. “Then when the referee blew the whistle I went to the coach before the team got back.

“It was not with any bad intention that I wanted to leave but I had a shower at half-time already, I had a shower upstairs and then I just went. I was not happy, of course, with how the game went and everything but it was not any intention to do that.

“I spoke to my team-mates straight after. If someone felt offended or something, everyone was OK. You created the story, but it was nothing like this.”

“I signed a long contract here,” he adds. “Chelsea is the most important club in my career. I want to give back all the trust they put in me. That’s my only target.

“There will be good moments, there will be bad moments. There will be managers coming in and out. My contract is with Chelsea and I serve the club.

“I have always had interest from other clubs but, to be honest, it was never my intention to leave. I wanted to fight for my position. I know what I can give to the team and until the club tell me something else, then that will always be my target.”
