Alex Sandro is expected to sign a new contract with Juventus worth €5m per year, plus bonuses to match Chelsea’s proposal.
The Brazilian left-back currently has a deal to June 2020 that gives him €2.8m per year wages.
After rejecting numerous huge offers from Antonio Conte’s Chelsea over the summer, Juve intend to lock him down to a more lucrative contract.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Alex Sandro will double his basic salary to €5m in a new deal running to June 2022.
Once various performance-related bonuses are added in, he’ll earn close to the €7m wages that Chelsea had offered.
The paperwork is expected to be signed by early November.
£5million for Llorente
ANTONIO CONTE is reportedly frustrated by his lack of strikers at Chelsea after the club failed to sign Fernando Llorente in the summer.
Conte broke Chelsea’s transfer record to bring in £60million striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, but was keen to add another front man to his squad.
The Blues manager wanted a reunion with his former Juventus forward Llorente, but the Spaniard instead left Swansea for Tottenham.
And Conte is said to be frustrated by Chelsea’s efforts to sign Llorente.
According to The Times, Chelsea offered Swansea just £5million for Llorente – less than half the £11.5m Tottenham signed the 32-year-old for.
Conte initially asked Chelsea to sign Llorente back in January amid fears Diego Costa was set for a big-money move to the Chinese Super League.
But the Chelsea board were unwilling to invest so much money into a player with little resale value and were also unsure about his mobility.
Conte is now left with just one striker in Michy Batshuayi after Morata picked up a hamstring injury against Manchester City before the international break, which could keep him out of action for the next two months.
However, the Italian clearly has reservations about the Belgian forward.
Conte refused to bring on Batshuayi as Morata’s replacement in the 1-0 defeat to City, instead opting for winger Willian.
