Barca after Stamford Bridge stars
Barcelona are planning a three-man raid of Chelsea this summer.
The Spanish champions, who pulled off an incredible comeback against PSG in the Champions League last night, are admirers of players who are currently part of the Chelsea team set to be Premier League champions this year.
According to Spanish media, Barcelona sent director of sport Robert Fernandez and scout Ubrano Ortega to watch Chelsea’s 3-1 win over West Ham.
They were thought to be watching Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic.
Alonso and Azpilicueta have been pretty much ever-present in Chelsea defence this season, which is the area of the pitch Barca want to strengthen most.
The report claims the duo were also present in London the following day to watch Hector Bellerin for Arsenal against Bayern Munich.
