Juventus offer Alex Sandro £84,000-a-week new deal with Chelsea willing to pay world record £61million for full-back


JUVENTUS are doing everything they can to keep Alex Sandro by tempting him with a new £84,000-a-week deal.

However, Chelsea are willing to fork out a world-record £61million for the defender and wages in excess of £100,000 a week, according to reports.

Antonio Conte is going all out for the Juventus defender, with deals for Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayoko thought to be close to completion.

The Serie A side have told the Brazilian he must make a transfer request if he wants to leave.

And they have attempted to sway him into staying for one more season with the promise they will at least consider allowing him to move next summer, say the Evening Standard.

Juventus are reportedly using the proposed signing of Real Madrid star Danilo to replace Dani Alves as motivation for Sandro to remain.

Chelsea are also in for the Brazilian right-back but Sandro – a close friend of Danilo having played together at Porto – remains their main priority.

The Blues had a £52m bid for Sandro rejected last month but it is thought that the left-back is in favour of a switch.

Chelsea are willing to pay £50m for Juventus ace Alex Sandro but is he the best full-back in the world?

Alex Sandro factfile

  • Brazilian Alex Sandro, 26, was born in January 1991.
  • He came through the ranks at Atletico Paranese, played for Santos, then joined Porto for £8.4million in July 2011.
  • He played 87 games for Porto in four seasons,  winning two Portuguese titles.
  • Sandro played for Brazil at the London 2012 Olympics, where he won a silver medal.
  • Juventus signed him for £22million in August 2015.
  • He has so far won seven international caps for Brazil, where he has been likened to Roberto Carlos.

Reports had claimed Sandro had agreed personal terms with the Stamford Bridge outfit but those now seem premature.

Transfers may speed up once boss Antonio Conte reports back to Cobham this weekend after a summer break which included time in Majorca.

Last season’s Premier League winners will begin pre-season training on Monday.
