Bad news for Chelsea as race for key summer target reportedly heats up

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been convinced that Alex Sandro will move to Stamford Bridge this summer…

Recent reports, including from the Times, suggest that the Blues are edging ever closer to a move for the Brazilian, but now that doesn’t seem to be the case.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, there is a race ensuing for the defender, with Chelsea no longer the only contenders for his signature. Di Marzio reports that the likes of Man City and PSG are both in the hunt for him as both clubs look to improve their defensive line.

This will, of course, come as a blow for Chelsea and Antonio Conte, with the Italian clearly seeing Sandro as a key part of his summer plans.

Man City would certainly be a good home for Sandro, with Pep Guardiola’s offensive style of play suited perfectly to the Brazilian. Quick, technical and agile, he would certainly be a hit in the Premier League.

That being said, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are still hopeful that a deal will come to pass, with many already planning to get the defender’s name on the back of their shirts next season.
