Conte makes decision on signing Juve's Alex Sandro

According to ESPN FC’s Italian football expert Gabriele Marcotti, The Blues will NOT be pursuing Juventus left-back Alex Sandro in the January transfer window.

Sandro was linked with a move to Chelsea last summer, with a fee around £65million mooted for the Brazilian. However, the deal failed to materialise and the 26-year-old has since suffered with a lack of form.

He has been left out of Juventus’ Serie A side on a number of occasions this season, with Ghanaian Kwadwo Asamoah often preferred to him.

Despite that, Marcotti does not think Juventus are keen on allowing him to leave Turin.
But he does not believe the likes of Chelsea would still stump-up that amount of money anyway.
“Alex Sandro of course in the summer, a lot of talk about Chelsea offering vast sums,” Marcotti said.
“You’re talking £65, £70, £75million and a year ago he certainly was on that level.

“But he’s having a very poor season this year, at Juve as often Asamoah plays ahead of him.
“As I see it, I don’t see why Juve would let him go.

“They want to hang onto him and try to get him back to the level at which he was at.
“So I think there is a very, very small chance and certainly no-one in England who has watched him play this year are going to offer those kind of sums.”

Alex Sandro's contract runs until 2020 and as he is out of form, he won't be featured among Antonio Conte's desired signings this January.
