Juventus hatch plan to prevent Chelsea from signing top left-back – report
Juventus will offer Alex Sandro £100,000 a week in an attempt to prevent the left-back from moving to Chelsea this summer, according to reports
Juventus are ready to hand Alex Sandro a new lucrative contract to prevent Chelsea from signing the Brazil international in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the English media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the Serie A champions are prepared to offer Sandro £100,000 a week in an attempt to keep the full-back at Turin beyond the summer transfer window.
The respected media outlet revealed last week that Chelsea would have to submit an offer in the region of £52m to sign the South American defender to convince Juventus to open negotiations over a transfer fee.
Indeed, the Premier League champions were thought to have made a significant offer for Sandro after Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta confirmed Chelsea had submitted a bid.
According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea will come back with an increased offer to sign Sandro as Antonio Conte looks to make an improved offer to sign the Brazilian this summer.
Chelsea won the Premier League title in their first season under the management of Antonio Conte.
