Marcos Alonso : A leader

The Barça locker room sees Alonso as one of its team leaders. He hasn’t been a consistent starter week in and week out, and his playing time has decreased this season.

Alonso has gained the total respect of his teammates despite being in just his second season at Barcelona, according to the article.

According to reports, the 32-year-old has developed strong bonds with team members Sergi Roberto, Frenkie de Jong, and Robert Lewandowski. Due to his professionalism and expertise, the young players on the team look up to the former Chelsea defender as an example.

Decreased Playtime

Despite the fact that Alonso doesn’t play much, manager Xavi Hernandez is reportedly very happy with the player, his attitude, and his work.

According to the source, even if Marcos Alonso doesn’t play much, he is already considering how the club will profit from his actions. Everyone can hear him speak in the locker room.
Alonso’s situation, though, may have been drastically different had he been able to leave Barcelona during the summer transfer window.

Future Unclear

Saudi Arabian teams showed interest in the 32-year-old Spanish star, and Manchester United were also briefly mentioned. However, nothing came of it since manager Xavi also wanted to hang onto the left-back. Alonso never thought about leaving.

However, Alonso’s deal with Barcelona expires in the summer of 2024. It is unclear if the team will want to renew it or not.
