Chelsea 'offering Azpilicueta and Alonso to Barcelona for De Jong'

Atletico Madrid have jumped into the battle for Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Spain defender is eager to return home this summer and is in talks with Barcelona.

However, Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda has revealed Atletico's interest on El Chiringuito.

"Atlético wants a wing-back and he is my countryman, César Azpilicueta, from Chelsea," said Inda.

"The problem that Atlético has is that Barça wants the player and Chelsea is willing to sell him and Marcos Alonso as well, but it would be in exchange for Frenkie de Jong.

"They are two players with an age. There would be financial compensation to Barça."

Manchester United are also pushing hard to sign De Jong this week.
