Alonso rejects Barcelona rumours: Chelsea can win Prem next season

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso has declared he plans to stay next season.

Linked with a move to Barcelona, Alonso says he is already eyeing next season's Premier League title with the Blues.

Asked whether Chelsea would be able to fight for the championship next term, Alonso replied: "I'll say yes.

"We saw it a few years back where we won our most recent championship. And we have since been able to compete against the others.

"I think we are capable of winning against any team and we just need to improve a little bit in terms of continuity throughout the season. We will try to get a little closer (in winning the championship) next season."
