Alonso commits his future to Chelsea

Marcos Alonso has signed a new five-year contract at Chelsea that will run until 2023. The Spanish left back, who is expected to earn £150,000-a-week, has been praised by Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia for his attitude and ability.

Alonso joined Chelsea from Fiorentina after spells in England with Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland. He is considered as an important player within the team and has won the Premier League title and the FA Cup in his first two seasons with the Blues. The 27-year-old made his international debut last March but was not part of Spain’s national team during the World Cup in Russia.
