Chelsea’s defender has opened up on his future amid links with a return to the Serie A.
The wing-back has been in fine form this season, displacing Ben Chilwell in Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea starting XI.
However, he has been linked with a move away from the club with Inter Milan as a potential destination.
Speaking with SE12, Alonso gave an honest verdict on his future.
He said: “Well, the truth is that a bit of both. I’m very good there and also, before I retire, I would like to have the opportunity to play in LaLiga. It is not something that feels urgent, I am very well in a great team and fighting for great titles. I have a two-year contract and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
i’m very tired of chelsea, i find it very hard coping here, i need to leave so as to make myself happy…
The Spaniard has been linked with a return to Italy, where he previously played for Fiorentina, as Inter Milan are readying a move for the defender.
The 30-year-old has constantly been linked with a switch to Italy and was attempted to be used as part of the deal to sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer.
Inter rejected Chelsea’s offer but they are still keen on the Spaniard, who enjoyed a stellar start to the 2021/22 campaign.
It remains to be seen as to whether Alonso will depart Chelsea anytime soon but interest from abroad continues.
Having made just one appearance for Real Madrid in his youth, the ex- Fiorentina defender has spent the vast majority of his career in England – including spells with Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland – and is now in his sixth season at Stamford Bridge.
Understandably, he harbours the ambition of playing in his native La Liga before he hangs up his boots.
“It is not something urgent, I am doing very well at a great club and fighting for big titles. I have two years in my contract and we will see what happens in the future.”
