Massimiliano Allegri

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:

“Alex Sandro is a Juve player. He is sensational and will not leave,” Allegri said after the friendly game against AS Roma played in the USA last night.

Chelsea were really keen on the full-back and were ready to place a £ 60m to secure his services – it was rumoured that Sandro already agreed personal terms with the Blues-  but it looks like Juventus will try everything to keep the Brazilian player.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri believes Leonardo Bonucci won’t leave the Serie A side this summer, despite both Chelsea and Manchester City are rumored to be interested in the Italian defender.

“He’s an important player, an extraordinary player – Allegri said today – And above all he has to understand that he’ll be the future leader of the Juventus dressing room”.

It is understood Chelsea had a summer bid rejected by Juventus, but manager Antonio Conte is reportedly willing to land Bonucci to Stamford Bridge.

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has been dropped from the squad for the clash against Porto after he has been reportedly involved in a row with Bianconeri’s manager Massimiliano Allegri a few days ago.

It is understood Chelsea are still keeping tabs on the 29-year-old centre-back, whose contract is due to expire in June 2021.

Allegri is quoted to have said: “Leonardo Bonucci will not be in the squad tomorrow; it is right to do so on behalf of the club, fans and team”.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a huge admirer of the Italian centre-back, who is rumored to be considering a move out from the Serie A outfit should the situation be still unresolved at the end of season.

New Juventus signing Juan Cuadrado has confirmed he tried everything to come back to Italy following last season’s positive spell with the Serie A side.

The Colombia international, who joined the Bianconeri on loan from Chelsea again this summer, told Juventus Channel:“It has been touching to see the stands and the rumble fo the fans,”

“I did everything to come back and thanks to God I’m back here and I’m really happy.”

The 28-year-old spent also last mid-season at the Serie A champions and now is ready to play again under manager Massimiliano Allegri, despite Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is said to be a huge fan of him.

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has revealed Chelsea winger Juan Manuel Cuadrado is edging closer to moving back to the Serie A side, where he spent last season on loan featuring 40 times under Massimiliano Allegri.

“Cuadrado is a player welcomed for various reasons – he told La Gazzetta dello Sport With us, he behaved well, our experience with him was extremely positive. It’s a question that will be resolved in the next couple of days max”.

“For now, he’s at Chelsea. If the club is open to it, well, we’ll start talking. A loan? I’d say yes, we’ll see.”

His agent Alessandro Lucci is reportedly traveling to London in order to seal an agreement with the Blues on a season-long £3.5m loan with an option to buy.

Anyway, new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is said to be a huge fan of the 28-year-old and claimed last week: “He will come back very soon and train and play with us. He’s a Chelsea player and he’ll stay with us,”

Juventus are lining up a summer move to land Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic to Serie A to replace Paul Pogba, according to The Sun.

Juventus are reportedly lining up a £17m bid for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, according to Sportitalia.

After several injuries during the season – Claudio Marchisio and Sami Khedira above all – the Old Lady has decided to strengthen the midfield in view of next season having already landed Miralem Pjanic from Roma.

It is understood Matic is Massimiliano Allegri‘s top target and Juventus sport director Giuseppe Marotta is working on a deal to sign the Serbia international, who is under contract with Chelsea until 2019.

Chelsea are lining up a £20m offer for Juventus man Simone Zaza and the striker is considering a move to Stamford Bridge, according to Tuttosport.

The Italy international is believed to have been targeted also by Premier League champions Leicester, whereas Juventus have also rejected bids for the player in the January transfer window.

It is understood Massimiliano Allegri is keen on keeping Zaza with the Bianconeri, despite the 24-year-old reportedly wants to leave in order to feature regularly and then Chelsea might be the right choice.

Simone Zaza moved to Serie A club Juventus last summer but has only managed 4 starts since his arrival.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is willing to let the player leave, but only for the right price. Which is said to be around £24m.

According to Talksport, Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan and Roma are interested in signing the 24-year-old.

Antonio Conte, the ever more likely Chelsea boss for next season, could be looking to add depth to his squad, looking towards his old club Juventus for players that impressed while he was in charge of the Italian side.

Reports from Tuttosport suggest that Leonardo Bonucci and on-loan Juan Cuadrado are at the top of Conte‘s shopping list.

However, Juventus boss Max Allegri is more than keen to keep hold of both of these players, he see’s them as a big part of the team for next season. Reports also suggest that Allegri is planning a counter offer in the hopes of securing the services of out-of-form Eden Hazard and also Brazilian winger Willian.

It leaves a difficult decision for Chelsea to make because although Conte would want to make his own mark on the team, selling Hazard could prove to be a bad decision. Although he has had a poor season so far, he has the ability which he proved in a spectacular season last year.
