1st January Deal? Chelsea Ready To Sign Brazilian For £58.5m

Although Marcos Alonso has done well in the left wing back position for Chelsea since he signed for them in 2016 for an estimated £24 million, this has not stopped Chelsea from getting linked with the signing of another big money left back.

According to Calciomercato.com Chelsea are ready to spend as much as €65 million (£58.5m) in order to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus. The Italian media outlet reckons the Brazilian is Antonio Conte and Chelsea’s number one target this winter.

The Brazilian was first linked with a move to Chelsea while he was at Porto and the Blues have still not given up hope of signing him even now that he is at Juventus. According to reports Chelsea made offers for him last summer but Juventus remained determined to keep their prized asset. The Italian champions are even said to be ready to offer him a new contract which will potentially fend off the likes of Chelsea, but with nothing signed so far, the Blues will believe they have a chance of signing Sandro.

Chelsea could take advantage of the player’s contractual situation at Juventus, but for a back up, the £58.5m fee the Premier League champions are reportedly ready to spend, is way too much in my opinion. Chelsea made a mistake selling Ryan Bertrand to Southampton and I believe if they want a back up to Alonso they should go for the Southampton starter.

Bertrand wouldn’t come cheap as Southampton are not known to sell cheap, but he would certainly not cost as much as £58.5m. Signing Bertrand may not be as glamorous as signing Alex Sandro but with Alonso already in the team, there is absolutely no point, well in my view, to sign Alex Sandro. Alonso can do the job and Bertrand would make a decent back up.
