27-year-old Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso has confirmed he’s on the verge of signing a new Chelsea contract.
The Spanish international has impressed since joining from Fiorentina for £23 million in 2016 and finished last season as the highest-scoring defender in Europe’s top five leagues with seven goals.
“I am very calm and very happy at Chelsea,” Alonso told Spanish media outlet 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.”
Alonso impressed as a wing-back in Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system and he has slotted in well into Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system.
When asked about the length of his new Chelsea contract, Alonso added: “My father takes care of that as he is the one who leads the negotiations. I am 27 years old, I still have two more years and I am going to extend my contract.
“What concerns me is to play as well as possible to win matches and titles with Chelsea and with the national team. I’m calm with my contract.”
