Juventus are reportedly ready to allow Alex Sandro a transfer to Chelsea if he asks for one, with latest reports in Italy suggesting the Blues’ incoming bid will be enough to convince his club to sell.
The Italian giants stand to make a huge profit on the Brazil international if they let him go this summer, having signed from Porto just two years ago for £22million.
Chelsea are now understood to be preparing a £61m bid for Sandro as Antonio Conte makes him a priority target over fellow Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci.
The Blues already have Marcos Alonso at left wing-back, but Sandro looks a potential upgrade in that role as Conte seeks to improve the depth of his squad for the added challenge of Champions League football next season.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus seem ready to accept the departure of the 26-year-old this summer, but only if he comes to them and requests a move, which he has not yet done.
Still, Chelsea will be pleased to see their pursuit of the player looking likely to come off, with the decision now in Sandro’s court as he weighs up a tempting move.
The attack-minded left-back would likely come in for a major salary increase by moving to Stamford Bridge, and the Premier League has long been regarded as the most prestigious in world football.
This would be the second summer in a row that Juventus lost one of their best players to the riches of English football, with Paul Pogba also leaving them for Manchester United in a world-record £89million move last year.
