The Blues are in the middle of an ownership change, with Todd Boehly's consortium set to purchase the club by the end of the month.

The club cannot engage in transfer activity until the takeover is complete, with Alonso's future most likely sorted at the end of the season.

Barcelona have 'no intention' to pay a high fee for Alonso due to the length left on his contract, meaning that if he is to depart Chelsea it will be for a cut price.
