Marcos Alonso has turned out be a pretty good signing for Chelsea.
Since joining from Serie A outfit Fiorentina in 2016 for £24m, he has made 121 appearances in all competitions, scoring 18 goals, and he has also won one Premier League title, one F.A Cup and one Europa League.
Watch the greatest fan celebration of a goal you will see all season in the video below…
In his two league campaigns in English football, he has made a strong impression. But his career in south-west London could have been over earlier this summer. According to The Athletic, Atletico Madrid registered a strong interest in the left-back.
However, the deal was not considered by the Stamford Bridge outfit’s board, due to Frank Lampard’s arrival and the two-window transfer ban.
The Blues fans, it appear, do not seem too happy with the news. Alonso has been criticised by supporters in the past, and it seems that many would not have been too disappointed had he left this summer. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

Of course we did. We sell good players and keep deadwood around, it’s a Chelsea thing.
