The defender does not want to accidentally endanger his switch to Barcelona

Marcos Alonso has asked Thomas Tuchel not to feature against Everton on Saturday, SPORT has learned. The player has not refused to play but did ask the coach to be left out of the side, to ensure he does not get injured ahead of his Barcelona switch.

The clubs are close to a deal for the defender and he has the nod from Tuchel to leave. Chelsea signed Marc Cucurella to step in for him.

Alonso will join Barcelona but the club are focussed on selling players and registering their current signings first.
