FC Barcelona are already in talks with Chelsea to try to secure the signings of César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso. As of Monday, ‘Sport’ reports, both players will be pushing for their transfers to be completed as soon as possible.
Kessie, Christensen, Raphinha, Lewandowski and Kounde are not enough. Barça still wants to finalise two more signings. The club has already set to work on them.
The idea of the Catalan club is to travel to London next week. There he will meet with Chelsea to talk personally about Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
‘Sport’ points out on Saturday that next week is going to be key. Barça have already started to make moves and have made contact with Chelsea, but the ‘Cule’ club needs a little help from the two full-backs in question.
According to the newspaper, Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso will put pressure on the club from Monday. The idea is to help them get to Camp Nou as soon as possible.
Xavi has already had a conversation with both of them to convince them that Barça will do everything in their power to bring them both to Barcelona. The Barça coach would like to have them back for next weekend’s Gamper so that they can gain some experience before the start of La Liga.
Barça are optimistic. The relationship with Chelsea is good and they hope that, with the help of Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso, the two will be able to join the rest of the squad.
