Barcelona and Chelsea close to agreement for Alonso

Barcelona are closing on a deal for Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso.

Alonso has openly declared he wants to move to Barca this summer with less than a year to run on his current deal.

Sport says Barca and Chelsea are in advanced talks over a fee for the Spain left-back.

Barca expect to pay less than £10m to sign Alonso.

The defender, 31, said last month: "I can not complain about anything in Chelsea, but I'm hungry to play in Spain."
