Marcos Alonso sealed a move to Barcelona on transfer deadline day.

The Spaniard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were part of a swap deal that also saw Aubameyang head to Stamford Bridge.

After 6 years at Chelsea where he mostly excelled as a left wing-back and won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League, Alonso has sent a farewell message to Chelsea fans and also didn’t forget former owner Roman Abramovich and former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

He posted: “Can’t thank you enough for the 6 years we spent together. It’s been a real honour to defend the blue colour around the world and to write the history of this great club.

“Special mention to Mr. Roman Abramovich and Antonio Conte for giving me the chance at the very beginning. All the people at the club, stadium and training ground thank you.

“Managers, teammates, medical staff lead by Dr. Paco Biosca, kitmen etc… it was a pleasure to share the changing room with you all these years. And of course, to the fans thank you for your support since day 1.

“It’s thanks to you that Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world so keep the blue flag flying high. Yours forever, running down the left wing for you. M💙”
