Manchester United is another club yearning for the signature of the midfielder, Chelsea need to convince the Dutch star of their project.

Alonso is interested in a move to Barcelona and he wants an agreement to be reached as quickly as possible.

Although the defender is yet to reach an agreement with the La Liga team, Barcelona has shown interest in the former Real Madrid ace but they would not make a move if they are not sure if they will be ready to register him.

Alonso will remain with Chelsea until his future is resolved and he would be exempted from the match squad to avoid injuries because he is already disconnected from the team.
