Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso waiting for Barcelona green light

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso is a step away from signing for Barcelona.

BILD's football chief Christian Falk is reporting the wing-back, 31, will put pen to paper on a contract until 2025.

However, the two clubs are currently said to be negotiating the final details of the deal.

Barcelona look set to pay around £6m for the Spaniard, who is into the final 12 months of his current contract at Stamford Bridge.

Xavi called Alonso to talk through the details over the move after the defender submitted a transfer request.
