Barcelona have reportedly received approval from Lionel Messi to go after Chelsea ace Marcos Alonso after ending their interest in Bayern Munich star David Alaba.
Bayern and Austria left-back Alaba is thought to have been among Barcelona top targets to bolster Ernesto Valverde’s squad.
However, the latest reports indicate Nou Camp chiefs have set their sights on a different player instead – with Messi giving the ‘green light’ to that change.
According to Don Balon, Barcelona have decided it would cost too much to prise Alaba away from Bayern, and that’s come as they’ve switched their attention to Chelsea ace Alonso.
