Real Madrid target Marcos Alonso confirms new Chelsea contract imminent

Marcos Alonso has confirmed he is close to signing a contract extension with Chelsea.

The Spain international still has two years remaining on his current deal. But with his impressive form piquing the attention of Barcelona and Real Madrid, Chelsea are keen to improve his terms.

And speaking after playing 90 minutes in the loss to England on Monday, Alonso revealed the new deal was imminent.

"I am very calm and very happy at Chelsea," Alonso told AS.

"The club must also be happy with me because, although I still have two years left on my contract, they have offered me an extension."

"We are talking about it and the talks to renew are already advanced. If everything goes well, I think I will renew before the end of this month - in the coming days."
