Transfer News: Chelsea are considering bringing in Barcelona wonderkid Alejandro Balde as part of a move for Marcos Alonso or Cesar Azpilicueta and they have already opened talks with the player’s agent.
The Catalan giants have long been linked with an interest in the Blues’ Spanish duo and it is likely that a move could happen this summer.
Cesar Azpilicueta has activated a clause to extend his contract but Chelsea are believed to be open to releasing him to Camp Nou, while Marcos Alonso is known to be looking for a new challenge and has not hidden his dream of playing in La Liga.
Reported from Mundo Deportivoit is reported that the Blues intend to capitalize on Barcelona’s interest in Alonso and Azpilicueta to land one of La Blaugrana’s highly valued young defenders, Alejandro Balde.
CheIsea have been eyeing the 18-year-old since last summer and now they have a chance to secure him as a younger substitute for Ben Chilwell and at the same time release their two oldest players, killing two birds with one stone.
Still in the same report, Thomas Tuchel’s team is said to have been in contact with Balde’s agent, Jorge Mendes, who is also the agent of Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Blues inquired about the teenager’s availability and proposed a swap deal for one – or both – of Alonso and Azpilicueta. The offer seems to be attractive to Barca who are currently experiencing financial problems.
