Chelsea star Marcos Alonso may reportedly never play for the club again after being on the receiving end of a furious bust-up with Frank Lampard following the 3-3 draw with West Brom. Alonso’s future at the club has long been questioned with Lampard failing to be impressed by either the Spaniard or Emerson Palmieri last season.
Chelsea were eventually able to bring in Ben Chilwell from Leicester and he will be Chelsea’s first-choice option when he is fully fit.
It’s been a question of who out of Alonso or Emerson would be sold before the end of the transfer window.
Emerson has seemed the likeliest of the two to leave, with a move back to Serie A long being touted.
Alonso has started all three league games so far, suggesting he’s Lampard’s second-choice behind Chilwell moving forward.

But he was hauled off at half-time against West Brom for Cesar Azpilicueta after a dismal first-half performance.
And it appears Lampard’s disdain at Alonso didn’t end with his 45 minutes against the Baggies.
According to The Athletic, Alonso tried to watch the second half on the team coach as opposed to sitting with the rest of the substitutes.
It is claimed the 29-year-old went to the bus after having a shower, before returning within 10-15 minutes of the restart.

However, the report states Alonso’s decision to try and watch the second half from the team bus left Lampard seething.
The Chelsea boss is said to have been “the angriest they’ve ever seen him” from those close to Lampard.
Alonso’s dressing down also came in front of his Chelsea team-mates.
One source told The Athletic: “The players were saying they have never seen the manager like this.
“It kicked off after the game and he was going mad at Alonso.
“Some were talking about how they’d be surprised if he plays for Chelsea ever again.”
Lampard also appeared to single out Alonso after the game, criticising the defender for his role in two of West Brom’s goals.
“The first one Marcos heads it into the middle of the pitch for them for a transition,” Lampard said.
“Marcos loses his man for the third goal from the corner, a clear mistake.
“You can do as many meetings as you want, if you are going to make those mistakes you give yourself a mountain to climb.”
