Real Madrid and FC Barcelona want Marcos Alonso 

Diario Gol has reported that both the Spanish giants are looking at an upgrade at the left back position this summer. Jordi Alba has had a slump in form whereas Marcelo's defensive woes have hurt Real Madrid. 

Real and Barcelona are reportedly set to go head to head for the signing of Chelsea's Marcos Alonso. The Blues' failure to potentially book a place in the top four has further cemented the Spanish sides' intent of taking him on board. 

Alonso is said to be in agreement over a move back to Spain and is ready to play for any of the two teams. Diario Gol has valued Alonso at €50 million. 

Sevilla keen to appoint Manuel Pellegrini 

Though the caretaker manager Joaquin Caparros has all but guaranteed a Europa League spot for Sevilla, the Andalusian club is still expected to appoint a new manager for the next season. 

Marca has reported that Sevilla want Manuel Pellegrini to take over the side this summer. Pellegrini is currently managing Hebei Fortune in China but is reportedly looking for a move back to Europe.
