Juventus left back Alex Sandro has been repeatedly linked with a move to Chelsea since the last summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old didn’t make the move to Stamford Bridge despite strong links, and reports are strongly linking him with Chelsea yet again as we approach the January transfer window.

Chelsea’s reported bid of around £70m for the Brazilian in the summer failed to materialise with Juve not keen on losing another key player after the departure of Leonardo Bonucci.

However, reports now claim Juve are willing to let Sandro leave the club, with the 26-year-old keen on pursuing a new challenge.

Chelsea are said to be back strongly for him, and now Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also being linked with the Chelsea target.

It’s suggested the Portuguese will look to get Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind off the books in January to make room for Sandro.
