BY SAMSON MBII/SOURCES,NAIROBI,16TH AUG 2017-Chelsea are reportedly confident that Alex Sandro wants to move to Stamford Bridge, but they may need the full-back to submit a transfer request.
The Brazilian has been linked to the defending Premier League champions all summer, but Juventus have rebuffed the Blues’ advances.
Bids of £52m and £61m have been rejected by the Italian giants, but Chelsea remain keen on getting a deal over the line after enquiring about Sandro on Tuesday, according to the London Evening Standard.
The report claims that the West London outfit are willing to pay the full-back £100,000 a week, which is a major improvement on the £84,000-a-week salary that Juventus have offered in a new contract.
Due to the player’s delay in putting pen to paper on fresh terms, Chelsea reportedly feel that they have a good chance of signing the 26-year-old, as long as he forces the move along.
