Alex Sandro won’t be leaving Juventus unless Chelsea or any other club interested in the player coughs up an offer of £60m.
That’s according to The Telegraph, who understand that the player wants to leave the Serie A giants. However, Chelsea don’t want to pay the asking price as a bid for the player still hasn’t been tabled this month.
Sandro is arguably one of the best left-sided defenders in the world and the Blues desire competition for Marcos Alonso’s place.
The Telegraph also understands that Sandro is high on Antonio Conte’s shortlist in this transfer window. Porto’s Alex Telles and Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon are alernatives for Conte.
Chelsea need to splash the cash
In the modern transfer market, splashing money and paying over the odds is what Europe’s elite are currently doing. Let’s be honest, Phillipe Coutinho isn’t worth the £140m Barcelona have signed him for.
Alonso has shown this season he deserves to be at a club like Chelsea. Although, he hasn’t had any consistent threat to his place in the champions’ line-up since joining in the summer of 2016.
If Chelsea want to be regarded as a threat around Europe, we need to make this kind of signing.
