26-year-old defender speaks out over summer Chelsea move

For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, Marcos Alonso has been one of the best signings in recent memory…

Whilst he was signed with relatively little fanfare, the Spaniard has certainly proven his worth in the Chelsea first team – having made the left wing-back spot his own so far this season.

Now, several months after making the switch to the Premier League, Alonso has revealed that he had no second thoughts about moving to Chelsea, despite the fact that he might not have considered that he would be starting every week.

Speaking to IB Times, Alonso said: “There were some great teams interested in me in the summer but I decided to join Chelsea because they are a team that I had always liked”.

He continued: “I saw a possibility of succeeding here. I had some other offers from other teams from Italy and Spain but when Chelsea came to get me, I did not think twice”.

It seems as though as soon as an offer came in, Alonso immediately jumped at the chance to come to London. Given the Blues’ season so far, his decision has certainly been vindicated.

Alonso certainly deserves credit for his impact in the Chelsea first team, especially when you consider that Filipe Luis, who was signed in similar circumstances, was sold on after failing to make an impact in the first team.
