Chelsea set price for Barcelona targets Azpilicueta and Alonso

Chelsea have named their price for Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

Sport says the pair are waiting to join Barcelona. The duo have deals with Barcelona and have done for weeks, and are waiting patiently for the Blaugrana to sort out their financial difficulties and buy them.

Barcelona will try to seal their arrivals next week so they are with the club for the US tour. It's not easy as Chelsea have put €13m price tags on each of their heads.

The two deals will not be taken on in one, they are different affairs. Alonso has the OK from Chelsea to leave and he has various offers, although prefers Barcelona. Barcelona think that in Alonso's case the price can be lowered without too much difficulty.

Azpi's case is different. Chelsea have extended his deal unilaterally by a year. The player has asked the new owners to let him leave but manager Thomas Tuchel wants to keep him and the club will only sell him for €13m.
