REVEALED: Marcos Alonso chose Chelsea over Barcelona offer

Marcos Alonso chose Chelsea over a rival offer from Barcelona last summer, it has been revealed.

The Spanish fullback signed for Chelsea on deadline day from Fiorentina, but could've easily been playing for Barca this season.

AS says Barca made an offer to Alonso, but the defender refused.

Alonso was reluctant to move to Barcelona, despite his father having played for five years with the club.

The player's grandfather is Marquitos, who was part of the Real Madrid team which won five European Cups.
