Chelsea’s proposed deal to sign Juventus left-back does not appear to be as close to completion as first thought.
The Daily Mail reported on Tuesday afternoon that Sandro was on the brink of moving to Stamford Bridge for a £61M fee, which would make him the most expensive defender in the history of the game.
However, the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio has now reported to the contrary, and it doesn’t make for fond reading from a Chelsea perspective.
According to Di Marzio, Chelsea will face competition from both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Sandro this summer.
There also is no guarantee that he will leave Turin, as Di Marzio reports that there is still a possibility that he will opt to stay with the Serie A champions.
Many of us may be guilty of getting ahead of ourselves here. Let’s wait for something more concrete to emerge.
