Marcos Alonso has reportedly accepted an offer to join Atletico Madrid after staying on Wednesday for the Europa League final.
The Blues hit emphatically 4-1 winners over rivals Arsenal in Baku, but there was no starting place for the Spanish full-back, after being overlooked for Brazilian defender Emerson.
And according to Marca, Maurizio Sarri & # 39; s decision to overlook the 28-year-old, led the defender to accept a stalled offer from Los Rojiblancos.

Alonso reportedly wanted to return to the Spanish capital, and also played for Atleti's rival Real Madrid.
He was first contacted two months ago, but his contract requires tough expectations of an agreement, but the Europa League final seems to have pushed Alonso out the door.
An agreement will be a welcome relief to Diego Simeone, who this summer had the task of replacing two laggards.
World Cup winner Lucas Hernandez confirmed a move of £ 68 million to Bayern Munich in March, while former Chelsea full-back Filipe Luis will leave with a free transfer.
They join various others departing from the Wanda Metropolitano, including Captain Diego Godin and Antoine Griezmann.
