Alex Sandro

Juventus star Alex Sandro has agreed personal terms with Chelsea although the bianconeri are not open to sell the Brazilian star and are waiting for an official request to leave the club. The Old Lady has tried to offer Alex Sandro a contract extension with pay rise although their offer is not going to match the proposal of the Premier League giants who have offered the former Porto star a € 7-million-a-year salary. Juventus’ offer is between €4.5 and € 5 million-a-year.

Our reporter Nicola Balice claims Juventus don’t want to sell the defender and have promised the Brazilian that he will be leaving the club in the future if he agrees to stay in Turin for one more season.

The Serie A giants want to keep the player in Turin but expect to sort his future out quickly, possibly by the 15th of July, which is when Juventus will begin their pre-season tour in Mexico and US.

Before that date, Juventus and Chelsea will have a new meeting to discuss the player’s future. Chelsea’s opening €60 million bid was rejected by Juve last month and if the player will leave Turin he will only do it for a fee exceeding € 65 million plus add-ons.
