Chelsea buoyed as Juventus fullback Sandro expresses Premier League dream

Juventus fullback Alex Sandro has aired a desire to play in the Premier League.

The Brazilian was close to joining Chelsea in the summer of 2017 but Juventus blocked the move after allowing Dani Alves and Leonardo Bonucci to leave the club. Manchester United have also been linked with the 27-year-old.

And Sandro says he remains interested in joining an English club.

While representing Brazil on international duty, Sandro told a press conference: "I think, one day, who knows what will happen?

"I have a desire to play in the Premier League but right now I am very happy where I am at, the club I am at [Juventus], the league I am playing in.

"So today my only thought is to continue where I am because that's where I feel happy."
