Chelsea defensive pair Azpilicueta and Alonso remain keen on Barcelona move

Chelsea defensive pair Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso want to leave for Barcelona.

Azpilicueta came close to leaving Chelsea on a free transfer this summer before penning a new one-year extension, while left-back Alonso's deal will finish at the end of next season.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are ready to pounce on their contract uncertainty and lure them to the Nou Camp this summer.

It says the Spanish duo are 'seduced by the idea of wearing Barca colours' and 'want to come' and play for boss Xavi next season.

However, it adds that Barcelona have a 'problem in negotiations' with Azpilicueta loyal to the club after a decade at Stamford Bridge and having a 'moral obligation' not to force a move away.
