This is crazy:

Perhaps only Real Madrid’s Marcelo is ahead of Alonso in terms of the best players in his position on the planet right now. The Spaniard will be hoping to dethrone his left-back counterpart, and it looks as though he’ll be making that effort at Chelsea.

Laughable. Marcelo himself is not even the best LB, he is horrid in defence and is in early stages of decline IMHO, due to age (31yo in spring) and a string of minor injuries.

Apparently the author has never heard of

David Alaba (best fullback on planet)

Alex Sandro

Jordi Alba (even though I detest him and will be 30 in March)

Lucas Hernandez (I rate him 2nd best best LB atm, pipping Alex Sandro)

Benjamin Mendy

Jose Gaya (watch his Spanish national teams recent games to see what a beast he is becoming)

Alex Telles

Junior Firpo (my number one realistic target, best athlete on this list)


Faouzi Ghoulam

Maybe Andrew Robertson and Alejandro Grimaldo

Most, if not all of whom would be upgrades over Alonso, especially in terms of defensive play. Most of them would instantly improve the team.

Extending Alonso's contract for even 3 years takes him to within 6 months of being 34yo! He is slow as hell now at 27, soon 28. What do you think his pace will be at 32???

Fucking board (as they also want to extend 30-somethings Willian and Luiz into their mid-30's too) is completely losing the fucking plot.

Cant wait to hear about Cahill, Cesc, Moses, and Drinkwater extensions! Maybe if we are really lucky, Morata and Bakayoko too!!
