Chelsea to challenge Juventus for Real Madrid star

by -

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.

Danilo is contracted with Real Madrid but the Merengues have already told the player’s entourage that the Brazilian – who was signed from Porto for € 40m in 2015 and din’t have much playing time at the Spanish side-  can leave for an offer close to € 30 million.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica Chelsea are ready to make an opening € 27/28 million bid to sign the 25-year-old.

​Juventus have already begun transfer talks with Real Madrid but the Spanish champions have rejected the Bianconeri loan offer with € 23 million option to buy.
