Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is soon heading to Chelsea. Barça’s coaching staff have accepted his departure and negotiations between Barça and Chelsea are in the final stages. Marcos Alonso, however, will not be included in the deal to reduce the transfer price.
Chelsea wished to include the left-back as part of the deal for Auba.
Barça, who are interested in Alonso to reinforce their defence, are seeking between 25 and 30 million euros for Aubameyang and have refused to agree on an exchange.
They will negotiate separately for Marcos Alonso, for whom FC Barcelona would not pay more than 10 million.
As reported by ‘Relay’ on Monday, the agreement between Barça and Chelsea for Aubameyang could be settled at 22 million euros, plus another five million in variables. These figures would meet Barça’s expectations and give them the financial means to both register Jules Koundé and sign Marcos Alonso.
