ALEX SANDRO will not be kept against his will, according to Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta.
Sandro, 26, is currently being linked with a move away from Turin.
Chelsea are understood to be looking to snap up the left-back with Antonio Conte eager to bolster his defensive options this summer.
However there are still three years left to run on Sandro’s Juventus contract.
And it looks like the Brazilian will have to ask for a move if he wants to join the Blues.
Marotta insists he has no intention of selling Sandro unless he pushes for a switch.
He told Corriere Dello Sport: “A substantial offer has arrived.
“We have no intention of selling anyone, but if a player decides to leave, as has happened in previous years, then at the end of the day he has to go, because we don’t keep anyone against their will.
“But at the moment there are no such situations and I hope nobody will leave.”
Juventus paid Porto £22m to sign Sandro in 2015.
He made 43 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring three goals and assisting seven in the process.
