Marcos Alonso can complete a return to Real Madrid next summer: the Spanish left-back, who grew up as a player in the Merengues academy, can sign again for the Spanish giants since he is one of the first name that Zinedine Zidane submitted to chairman Florentino Perez in order to revamp his squad for next season.

Alonso left Real Madrid in summer 2010, when he signed for Bolton at the age of 20: he then moved to Fiorentina, who loaned him to Sunderland for some months in 2014, and after impressing in his last two seasons in the Tuscan side signed for Chelsea in summer 2016 in a £ 25m move.

The Spaniard made an impact in this first year and half at Stamford Bridge, at the point to attract the attention of Real Madrid again, with Zidane that aims to sign him next summer to replace Marcelo, who is not performing at the same levels of the past seasons, as Don Balón reports.

New Chelsea signing Alvaro Morata reveals the real reason he signed for the Blues and it’s all about the boss, Antonio Conte:

“Yes. I had various offers this summer, not only Chelsea and Manchester United but also from different leagues,” the Spanish striker told the Daily Mail.

“It was a good situation for me. The most important and best conversation I had was with Conte, he wanted me to come here. At the start of the summer, I didn’t know that Chelsea were interested in me. I thought they were in for a different player.”

“But I spoke with Conte several times and not only this summer. I felt in debt to him. He signed me for Juventus but left very quickly to manage Italy. I always wanted to play for him after that. It was only two months with him but it felt like I’d known him forever. When I knew he wanted me this summer, I didn’t think twice. I did everything I could to make the move happen.”

The Spain international returned to Real Madrid in summer 2016 after spending two years at Juventus but he already knew that his time at the club where he grew up as a players wouldn’t be so long:

“Last summer it was close. Cesar Azpilicueta was a bit annoyed because he had already started house-hunting for me last summer. We’d even got estate agents on board. This time Cesar has sorted everything!”

“When I spoke to Conte last summer, I said “If I’m going to leave Real Madrid, it will only be for Chelsea”. I remember I was with my wife after hearing him out conversation and I said “Chelsea are going to win the league this season.” And that’s exactly what happened. Now we need to repeat it!”
