Sandro on way? Sarri looking to spend big and land £60 million Juventus star for Chelsea
Reports have claimed Chelsea are lining up a January move for Juventus star Alex Sandro.
Amid the threat of a two-year transfer ban for an alleged breach of Financial Fair Play regulations, and the fact FIFA have recommended Chelsea be slapped with a four-window transfer ban after an investigation into them signing under-age players, there is some speculation Sarri will look to spend big in the coming transfer windows.
And one name that is reportedly now on his shopping list if that of Sandro reports the Daily Express website, who has been regarded as one of the best attacking wing-backs in Europe after developing a world class star at Juventus.[the_ad id=”238″]
We already have Marcos Alonso in that position, and even though the Spaniard is one of the clubs most consistent and impressive performer, Sarri knows he needs to add strength in depth to the squad to compete for more than just the Premier League titles over the next few seasons.
And reports go on to say the Italian will look to spend around £60 million of his £200 million January transfer kitty to bring in Sandro.
Could Sandro be a good buy for Chelsea? Here is what we think.
We are one of the biggest clubs in world football and have the financial security to acquire any player in world football, so buying Sandro would be a good bit of business by the club.
He is a top-level performer that would bring a fresh challenge to Alonso, who has become the clubs number one, but may drop his level of performance knowing that there is no-one to challenge for a starting spot.
So if we can get him for the right price, then yes he could be a world class buy for the club.
