Marcos Alonso gives Chelsea future update ahead of Arsenal

Chelsea vs Arsenal

Maurizio Sarri has one more chance to clinch silverware during his first season as Chelsea boss.

Chelsea have already had one shot at a trophy this campaign. But they went on to lose to Man City via penalties in the League Cup final.

However, Chelsea still have a chance at clinching European glory, as they face Arsenal in Baku on May 29th for the right to be crowned Europa League champions.

Even if they fail to beat Arsenal, Chelsea will still be playing Champions League football next season, after securing 3rd spot in the 2018/19 Premier League table.

Alonso on his Chelsea future

Ahead of the final, Marcos Alonso has been speaking about his future at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard had an excellent start to the season, which saw him assist four and score one in Chelsea’s opening four PL games of the campaign.

However, since then, Alonso’s form has majorly dipped, and he has been criticised online by some Chelsea fans for his performances versus the likes of Everton and Manchester United.

As a result of his declining form, the Chelsea faithful may have been hoping that the left-back would be departing this summer, with both Real and Atletico Madrid having reportedly shown an interest in him earlier this season.

However, Alonso recently spoke out about being linked with a move away from London, and it sounds as though he is pretty happy at Chelsea, for now:

“There is always talk. It means I’m doing well if other teams are trying to get in touch.

“I am very happy here, but we will see what happens this summer. First of all I’m focusing on the final. I am very happy to have four more years here, and hopefully I will stay many more years here.” As quoted by ESPN.
