Juve rejected 'very good offer from Chelsea for Sandro'

Tiemoue Bakayoko plays for Monaco versus Marseiile in Ligue 1

Some at the club had questioned the need to spend so much on a left-back when Marcos Alonso impressed so much last term, but Conte sees the Brazilian as a huge upgrade and intends to be utterly ruthless in improving his squad this summer. The Juventus general manager, Beppe Marotta, indicated over the weekend that an initial offer for Sandro had been rejected.

Juventus are set to chase Benjamin Mendy to replace Alex Sandro. And players are always their own boss.

Sandro starred in Massimiliano Allegri's title-winning side last season as Juve also reached the Champions League final.

Chelsea were reportedly willing to pay up to €60 million for the left wing-back, but Juventus have no intention of parting with the Brazil global.

Chelsea's long-standing interest in Bakayoko is also likely to come to fruition, with the France worldwide set to join for a fee in excess of £40m after a fine season at the heart of Monaco's Ligue 1 title-winning midfield.

Chelsea are yet to add to their squad this summer though Standard Sport understands former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero could become their first signing on July 1.

As noted in the report, it had been suggested that the 47-year-old's relationship with the club was becoming tested by the lack of transfer activity, as the Italian tactician thought that the Blues would move quickly in giving him a boost with new players being signed.
