Chelsea to battle with PSG for signature of 26-year-old Brazilian – report
Chelsea are set to battle with PSG for the signing of Alex Sandro this summer, say reports
Chelsea are set for a battle with Paris Saint-Germain to secure the signature of Alex Sandro this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the French club have emerged as serious contenders to sign the Brazilian full-back from Juventus this summer along with Chelsea.
The same report claims that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had identified full-back Sandro as one of his top targets for the summer transfer window but the Blues have not yet been able to agree a fee with Juventus.
It is claimed that the Serie A side want at least £61m for Sandro and the same article states that the Italian club are unlikely to drop their asking price for the 26-year-old Brazilian.
The story claims that Chelsea have already bid £55m for Sandro but they would have to smash their transfer record – which stands at £50m – if they want to sign the defender this summer.
Juventus, meanwhile, are said to be keen to offer Sandro a new contract to keep him in Turin.
Chelsea have been linked with a host of new signings this summer but the Blues are yet to confirm the capture of any players ahead of next season.
