Antonio Conte‘s biggest wish in this last transfer window month is to bring Juventus wing-back Alex Sandro to Stamford Bridge.

But the Italian manager transfer dream can be wiped out by Bianconeri’s coach Massimiliano Allegri, who restated that the ex FC Porto player is going nowhere:

Chelsea are close to agree a deal for Juventus star Alex Sandro, but the Brazilian is not the only full-back the Blues have targeted and the Stamford Bridge outfit is set to challenge the Bianconeri to sign Real Madrid full-back Danilo.

Juventus eyed the Champions of Europe player as the ideal replacement for Sandro, who is set to join Chelsea when he will be back from his holidays, but Antonio Conte wants more men on the flanks as the Blues will be involved also in Champions League next year, so he has targeted Danilo as well.
