Barcelona could be set for more financial issues and transfer scrutiny after their move to sign former Chelsea star Marcos Alonso in the summer was reported to FIFA. The Spaniard spent a fruitful six years at Stamford Bridge winning numerous trophies before terminating his contract with the Blues in the summer allowing him to sign for Barcelona.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the Spanish club to join Chelsea in a separate £10milllion deal. While no fee was transferred between Chelsea and Barca for Alonso, financial problems look set to occur. Spanish fourth division side Union Adarve, who Alonso represented as a youth player, are now claiming that they should have received £91,000 (€103,000) as part of the deal.
According to AS, Union Adarve have evidence of the two clubs previously negotiating for Alonso and the matter has now been reported to FIFA for fraud
Alonso has made 22 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona since his arrival scoring three goals in the process. His most recent strike came against Manchester United in the Europa League knockout play-off round as he headed beyond David de Gea from a corner.
