Barcelona is prepared to look elsewhere for recruitment following the delay tactics employed by Chelsea in a bid to sign Marcos Alonso.
Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has told the club’s board to bring on board Celta Vigo’s Spanish left-back Javi Galan who fits his style of play.
The 27-year-old defender featured against Real Madrid in their La Liga match and showed great performance despite his side crumbling to a 4-1 defeat at home to the reigning La Liga champions.
Barcelona move for Chelsea defender is getting complicated by the day and the close of the transfer window is getting nearer as well the board need to act fast in a bid not to get box by the Premier League team.
Alonso has signified his interest to quit Chelsea and team up with his fellow Spanish teammates at Barcelona but Chelsea is unwilling to let the move easy for all parties involved.
Ceasar Azpilicueta was on the list of players Barcelona intend to sign from Chelsea but the new Chelsea owner met his requirement and the move was dashed as the captain remained at the club for the ongoing season.
Chelsea want Barcelona attacker Pierre Emerick-Aubamenyang as well with the Camp Nou team playing hardball with the Blues over the transfer of the former Arsenal attacker.
With the transfer window coming to an end it is believed that both clubs will come to terms and seal these deals as both players seem not to be in the plans of the respective managers.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has signed Marc Cucurella from Brighton despite having Ben Chiwell on standby which makes Alonso surplus to requirement at the club, while in the case of Barcelona the signing of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha has reduced Aubamenyang to a bench player at the Camp Nou.
