Juventus director admits Chelsea wages could turn star’s head

Juventus director Beppe Marotta has admitted that Chelsea could still land a deal for defender Alex Sandro this summer, despite the fact that a bid from the Blues has been rejected.

The Turin chief revealed that the west Londoners had seen a €60m bid snubbed for the Brazilian international, who manager Antonio Conte is looking to bring in to provide depth and competition for Marcos Alonso in the new season.

Despite the offer being turned down the Italian champions feel that the Blues could still tempt the 26-year-old considering the wages they can offer.

Speaking to Italian outlet Tuttosport, Marotta said;

“Well, for him we received an offer of €60m from Chelsea. And, for the record, we refused it. But if Alex Sandro receives a salary offer which isn’t logical for us, then…”

As well as forming a key part of Juve’s infamous defence over the last two years, the former Porto man also chipped in with three goals and seven assists last season.

Conte will be eager to get business sorted as soon as possible with Premier League rivals already announcing their summer signings and the weeks until players return quickly ticking down.
