Alex Sandro set to SNUB Chelsea and sign new £93,000-a-week deal at Juventus as Antonio Conte faces more frustration with transfer targets

 

ALEX SANDRO is set to snub Chelsea and sign a new £93,000-a-week contract at Juventus.

Antonio Conte had made the highly-rated left-back one of his top targets in this summer’s transfer market, but is likely to face yet more frustration on the transfer front.

The Champions League finalists had been irked by the Blues’ public pursuit of their player and directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici met with boss Massimiliano Allegri to thrash out a suitable offer.

Juventus’ pursuit of Bayern Munich‘s Douglas Costa has cooled as they focus their attention on retaining Sandro.

The 26-year-old Brazilian is considered one of the best on the planet in his position and one of their pillars for the future.

Further to the new deal, the Bianconeri’s bid to sign his good friend Danilo from Real Madrid is yet another move to make him happy in Turin.

Sandro’s new deal will make him the club’s third best-paid player behind Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.

A £62million bid from Chelsea could still force the issue, but it is unlikely Roman Abramovich would sanction such a fee for a left-back.

Juventus are on the verge of bringing in Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina, which makes retaining Sandro their No 1 priority.

With young centre-backs Daniele Rugani, 22, and Mattia Caldara, 23, in their ranks, the reigning Serie A champions are slowly building their next world class backline.
