Chelsea FC and Manchester United are both keen on moves to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport is reporting that both of the Premier League clubs remain interested in signing the full-back this summer as they look to bolster their squads.

Sandro, 27, is no stranger to reports linking him with a move to the Premier League.

The Brazilian full-back was strongly linked with a move to Chelsea FC last summer but a switch failed to materialise as the Blues ended up signing Davide Zappacosta instead.

Now though, it is being claimed that Manchester United and Chelsea FC are both still keen on signing Sandro this summer, and that Paris Saint-Germain are also expressing an interest.

Chelsea FC and Manchester United will likely make a number of more signings this summer as both clubs look to assemble squads capable of winning the title next season.

The west London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification for next term.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are aiming to win their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge back in 2013.
