The three reasons that could lead to Alonso’s departure from Barcelona


Marcos Alonso strongly believes Barcelona want him to leave the club this summer, reports Javi Miguel of Diario AS.

There are three reasons why the Spanish defender thinks this way.

Barcelona not registered in La Liga: After two games into the new season, the Catalan side have yet to present Alonso’s name in La Liga due to their Financial Fair Play restrictions.

His salary: Alonso believes Barcelona are open to selling him because of his salary. The defender earns more than €6 million gross per season and the club is working to reduce the wage bill.


Inigo Martinez signing: The arrival of a left-back who plays exactly the same position as Alonso means his playing time will be extremely limited this season.

According to other reports, Alonso is already on the lookout for a new Premier League side with interest in Saudi Arabia also being looked at.
