Juventus have given up on trying to keep Chelsea target Alex Sandro and expect the player to leave, according to TMW.

Juve’s CEO Beppe Marotta and sporting director Fabio Paratici are believed to be resigned to the fact that the Brazilian will not to be staying in Turin, after the left back rejected two contract offers from the Serie A champions. The Italian side are now reportedly keen to get as much money as they can for Sandro as they line up moves for a replacement.

Sources close to the player have told TMW that the full back cannot wait to play in England, but it will now be down to Premier League clubs to make an acceptable bid for the defender.

Juve are said to be “awaiting the right proposal” from English clubs. No doubt Chelsea will be one of the teams who will make a formal offer in January after pursuing Sandro so vociferously in the summer. The Blues will have to be wary of rivals though, with Manchester United keen on the Brazilian international as well.
