Alex Sandromoving on. Their position is that their future transfer dealings must be in dialogue with how much they can obtain for the 26-year-old.
And as the move to Chelsea edges on for Sandro, CalcioMercato can reveal, that the Old Lady are making progress with their man left-sided midfielder Leonardo Spinazzola, who is currently on loan to domestic rivals Atalanta.
They are looking to bring the player back after a season-long-loan with the Serie A side, thereby enforcing their left –hand side, and hope to tie the player to the Turin based club with a contract extension.
This could well open the door for Brazilian international Sandro to leave the club, in a fee thought to be in the region on £60m.
Blues manager Antonio Conte is a huge admirer of the player, having known him from his Juventus days, but he faces competition from French side PSG.
Yet with the firepower of the Premier League, and a Chelsea owner, Abramovich, looking to keep his title-winning manager happy, the Pensioners could swing this seal in their favour.
