Chelsea to Conduct Fresh Alex Sandro Talks This Week
Chelsea will begin fresh talks on a move for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro this week, with the Premier League champions still confident of capturing the Brazilian.
Conte wants to add Sandro to his squad to compete with Marcos Alonso for the left-wing back role, but with the surprise departure of right-back Dani Alves, Juve are proving to be a little more difficult to negotiate with than anticipated.
But the Telegraph is reporting that another round of talks are planned for this week. Juventus have offered him a new deal worth around £76,000 a week according to the newspaper, but Chelsea are willing to pay him £100,000 a week.
Paris Saint Germain are also thought to be in for the Brazilian, but the player apparently favours a move to England. Nemanja Matic’s £40m move to Manchester United is expected to be completed this week, which could help finance a deal for Sandro.
