Alonso intends to see out contract

19th July 2019, 10:29 by Bobbie Jackson

Marcos Alonso insists he isn’t considering a move away from Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old is understood to be a target for Spanish duo Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this summer after falling out of favour in the latter stages of 2018-19.

Despite losing his starting berth to Emerson, the former Sunderland and Fiorentina full-back still made 31 Premier League appearances and is likely to be a big part of Frank Lampard's plans during the upcoming campaign.

Alonso, who signed a new long-term contract last season, says he intends to see out that contract and insists he is "very happy" in west London.

"I signed a new contract last year and I'm very happy here," Alonso said.

"I don't know if there's been any contact, you will have to speak to Marina [Granovskaia] about that."

Alonso added: "I have four more years here and I'm very happy.

"The last three years have been amazing and I want more of that. I want to keep playing and winning things."
