- Marcos Alonso who plays for Chelsea has reportedly agreed to join Atletico Madrid
- This comes after the 28-year-old was snubbed by Sarri to play in the Europa League final
- And without him, Chelsea went on to beat London rivals Arsenal 4-1 in Baku
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has reportedly agreed to join Spanish giants Atletico Madrid after being snubbed to play in the final of the 2018/19 Europa League against Arsenal.
Alonso was in superb form for Chelsea throughout their campaign last season in the Premier League, but he was kept on the bench by Maurizio Sarri for the Baku clash against the Gunners.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is said to be looking for a new left-back, and according to Marca, Marcos Alonso is ready to leave Stamford Bridge.
Last two months, Atletico Madrid were said to have contacted Marcos Alonso over a possible move to Spain, but his salary expectations put the deal on hold.
But their interest has reignited as Alonso now wants to return to his hometown and believes he could enjoy regular football under Simeone.
Despite coming through the youth ranks at Real Madrid, Marcos Alonso is said to be only interested in playing for Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish club must also be reminded that Marcos Alonso signed a new five-year deal in October 2018, and Chelsea will demand mega amount for him to leave.
