Inter Linked Marcos Alonso Will Join Atletico Madrid Next Month, Italian Media Report
Inter linked full back Marcos Alonso will join Spanish side Atletico Madrid in the upcoming January transfer window, after his failed move to the Nerazzurri in the summer, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The report details how the Milanese club looked to sign the 29-year-old Spaniard in the summer transfer window, but a deal collapsed with Chelsea after the Blues requested a loan with a buy-back fee, a condition not accepted by the Nerazzurri.
After a further six months in London, Alonso will leave next month, returning to his native country to play for Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid on a six-month loan.
Alonso has hardly featured under coach Frank Lampard this season, making only three appearances across all competitions for a total of 225 minutes.
Last campaign, the former Fiorentina man made 29 appearances, totally 2344 minutes of play. On the pitch, he scored four goals and provided three assists.
