Even though Juventus seem to be pretty happy with Alex Sandro in their squad, the Brazilian’s name continues being mentioned in the rumour mill, often with weak links to Manchester United and Manchester City.
It’s Tuttosport who has a story about the left-back today, this time claiming that Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain could be signing him this summer.
Both clubs have been linked to the 29-year-old for a while now, and there’s a special reason why the Blues would have a boost in their chase.
Juventus are said to be interested in Emerson Palmieri, and that would favour a swap between them. Especially because Frank Lampard doesn’t have a ‘good relationship with the Chelsea player’, Tuttosport says.
The outlet even mentions an old interest from Manchester United in Alex Sandro, but the fact that Chelsea are closer to a Champions League spot would give them an advantage in the chase.
Still, the newspaper highlights the fact that Paris Saint Germain may still be a more attractive destination than either either English club. They say the ‘charm’ of the French side may be ‘hard to resist’.
