Juventus have revealed that they’ve received a ‘substantial’ bid, thought to be from Chelsea, for left-back, Alex Sandro.

  • Chelsea table a third bid for Sandro
  • Arsenal and Manchester City previously linked
  • Director general admits transfer could be out of Juve’s hands

Chelsea have apparently been the recent front-runners to sign Sandro despite Arsenal reportedly readying a £34m bid back in May.

In fact, Antonio Conte’s side are said to have had two previous offers rejected.

The Blues are now thought to have made an even larger bid in the region of £55m after Juve’s director general Beppe Marotta confirmed that a ‘substantial’ offer has been made.

Although Marotta claims the Serie A giants have no intention of allowing the 26-year-old to leave this summer, he admitted that if the player wants to leave, it’s out of their hands, saying, “If a player decides to leave… then at the end of the day he has to go.”

Sandro signed for Juve from Porto two years ago for a reported £23m. He’s since gone on to make 75 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals and assisting 11.

The defender’s also been capped six times for Brazil.

Manchester City were linked earlier in the year.
