Chelsea have been linked strongly with Alex Sandro of Juventus, as a deal for the Brazilian seems to be in place.

However, reports claim Juve have offered the Brazilian left-back a new contract with many believing that it could affect his move to Chelsea.

Porto defender Alex Telles has been seen as Sandro’s possible replacement if the deal falls through and he has now been backed to end up at Chelsea “one day” by his agent.

Telles has a €40 million release clause at Porto, which would make him considerably cheaper than Sandro.

Telles’ representative concedes that a move could happen, with Fernando Otto telling Sport Witness: “For now, we have nothing.

“Not from Chelsea. Neither me nor the player received any contact from any English club. But it can happen.

He added: “When he went to Galatasaray, we had an offer from Chelsea for Alex. But at the time, we had already confirmed a pre-contract with Galatasaray, and we could not go back.

“But there was information exchange, last year too. And I believe that maybe one day he will play for Chelsea.

“I don’t know if it’s going to be this season or the next. But I feel like one day he can play for Chelsea.”
