Chelsea’s pursuit of Juventus left-back Alex Sandro has taken a few twists and turns already.
The Express has claimed that the Blues will table an improved offer of £60m after their initial £52m bid was rejected.
According to the publication, if Sandro is keen to leave Turin, Juventus will not stand in his way once a fee has been agreed.
While Manchester United and Manchester City have been getting some business done early, Chelsea have been relatively slow off the mark.
Frustrations have been clear to see on social media by some supporters, and that has not been helped by rumours that manager Antonio Conte might leave.
Although, numerous media outlets, including ESPN, have reported that the Italian has no intention of walking away from the Blues.
The latest reports surrounding Sandro have got the fans talking, with the majority excited about the prospect of the club adding him to their Premier League-winning squad.
A handful, though, are not quite convinced.
If we land Rodriguez, Sandro & Bakayoko I think we still had a pretty decent transfer window. Much panic about nothing #CFC

On Alex Sandro's price: if you're targeting a top 3 player in the world for any position I think you have to expect to pay £50M+ now. #CFC

So I never believe transfers until they are club confirmed. But oh my lord Alex Sandro in Chelsea blue…what a dream. #CFC

I rate Sandro, but I would rather the 60 million spent on Van Dijk and we bring in a young left back or give one ours a look but eh… #CFC

Am I the only one who feels for Marcos Alonso if these Alex Sandro rumours are true? Had a really good season for us, goals too! #CFC

Why are we not using Matic in the Sandro negotiations? 30m plus Matic should seal it. We already know they like him #CFC
