Chelsea fail with two bids for Juventus fullback Alex Sandro

Chelsea have failed with two bids for Juventus fullback Alex Sandro.

The London Evening Standard says Chelsea have had offers of £52 million and £61m rejected.

Antonio Conte's old bosses have already parted with star man Leonardo Bonucci and have offered Sandro a new £84,000-a-week deal to keep him.

The English champions, however, are prepared to pay the 26-year-old in excess of £100,000 but that has not affected Juve's stance and Conte wants his ex-charge to demand a move in writing.

Juve boss Max Allegri insists his player is not leaving Turin but they are in the process of cutting short the two-year loan of Leonardo Spinazzola, who plays in Sandro's position at Atalanta, 12 months early.
