Barcelona are ready to open new contract talks with Marcos Alonso.
Alonso, 32, signed for the Catalans on deadline day after protracted talks with Chelsea throughout the summer transfer window. The Blues eventually agreed to terminate the Spaniard's contract, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's move in the opposite direction appearing to have been key to an agreement finally being struck.
Alonso had initially requested a three-year contract, says Marca, with the club only able to offer a single season to comply LaLiga's Financial Fair Play rules.
The 31-year-old full-back signed a one-year deal at the Nou Camp, with a buyout clause set at £40million, agreeing to sizeable paycut to join.
The club's hierarchy are claimed to have been impressed by Alonso and are now prepared to offer a contract extension on the same terms.
Discussions are expected to centre on whether Alonso will be offered a deal until 2025 or a one-year with an option to extend for a second year.
