Chelsea give Barcelona price for two players

Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move for Chelsea defensive duo Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

Azpilicueta and Alonso have only one year left on their contract with the club and are both keen on leaving Chelsea this summer to return to Spain.

Barcelona and Chelsea are believed to have been in talks for some time now, and reports now claim that Chelsea have named their price for Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.

According to Sport, the duo have verbally agreed deals with Barcelona and are waiting patiently for the Blaugrana to sort out their financial difficulties and buy them.

Barcelona will try to seal their arrivals next week so they can join the club for their US tour.

The report further claims that Chelsea have put €13m price tags on each of their heads.

Chelsea however want the two deals to be treated as two different affairs as the club do not want the negotiations to be combined for the two different players.

Barcelona however think that in Alonso’s case the price for the Spaniard should be lowered.

Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta is believed to have told the new Chelsea owners to let him leave the club even though manager Thomas Tuchel wants to keep him and the club will only sell him for €13m.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have already agreed verbal terms with former Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen.

Christensen departed the Blues as a free agent, after the expiration of his contract with the club.
