Chelsea defender Alonso happy to extend contract with ‘one of the best teams in the World.’

Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso has signed a new long-term contract that will see him extend his stay at Stamford Bridge until 2023.

The Spain international joined the Chelsea in a £24 million deal from Serie A side Fiorentina in the summer of 2016 and won the Premier League in his first season in West London under former Blues boss Antonio Conte.

Alonso, 27, has established himself as one of Europe’s top attacking left-backs in recent years and no defender has contributed more goals or assists in the English top-flight since he moved to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking after news of his new contract was made official, Alonso revealed how happy he was to have committed his long-term future to one of the biggest clubs in the World.

“I am so happy to stay here longer and to keep playing for one of the best teams in the world,” he told Chelsea’s official website.

“It’s been a very good two seasons and I am looking forward to more.”

Chelsea face BATE Borisov tomorrow night in the Europa League before facing Burnley away in the Premier League on Sunday.
