At age 26 as well he is in the prime of his career, would be a great LB/LWB for years to come. Only question is would Alonso be okay with playing second fiddle to him and as a backup?

I really hope so. Firstly, because that would be impressive depth at LWB position and, secondly, losing Marcos would seriously dampen the pleasure of gaining a high class alternative.

No reason he shouldn't be. It's not like Alonso is some superstar. Plus he'll still get 25-30 appearances per season, play in London and earn higher wages than he could earn anywhere else. Alonso will be fine.

Exactly, having Sandro and Alonso for LB is pretty much perfect, couldn't really ask for better. Its the RB/RWB that really needs solving though

Alonso is also able to play as a CB, is he not?  Thought I recalled there being talk of him playing in the middle for Sunderland(?) a few years back.  This Sandro signing could allow Alonso to play on the left of the back 3 from time to time.  Just gives us options.

No.

He's a left wing back. He's literally not played CB in years....

Time to move on then. Tierney would be much a good choice, contrasts witb Alonso well atm. We could even go in for Mendy as well and it wouldn't cost 60m+.

The trouble with having these specific positions is teams who have good players there don't want to sell them. Antonio may have to think outside the box for WBs

Aurier. There's no denying his quality and he may come cheap. Massive upgrade on Moses and players from the French league usually adjust well to the PL.

Or lower our price and add on to his propsed wages. Why pay 60 after he's said he wants to leave? Give him the incentive to push harder 

There's no need to piss about and have them reject another bid because they feel disrespected. Unless you want to spend an entire summer going after him. Finish the business early and move on to other targets.

I think break egos are the break down of many transfers, if you want to get it down get it done I agree, they all want reputations as iron clad negotiators.
