Alex Sandro Deal Dead In The Water
It is believed that Juventus have turned down another offer from Chelsea for their wing back Alex Sandro. Antonio Conte has been chasing the Brazilian all summer long. Tonight, it looks as though the chase could be over.
The third bid the Blues have put in for Sandro is, according to The Daily Star an upfront payment of £64m with bonuses of £9m. Were it to be accepted, it would beat Chelsea`s previous transfer record, set with the arrival of Alvaro Morata earlier in the window.
Antonio Conte is desperate to strengthen his squad following the first game defeat against Burnley. However, there is still plenty of time to get other deals done with 15 days left of the transfer window to complete signings.
It may be that Chelsea have to admit defeat with this one and look to other targets. If the news outlets are to believed there is certainly no shortage of possible suitors for places in Chelsea`s starting XI. No doubt we`ll have to wait at 14 days to find out who they are.
