Chelsea fail in bid to sign Alex Sandro, says Juventus Featured

Juventus have rejected a bid from Chelsea for left-back Alex Sandro, according to the Serie A club's general director Giuseppe Marotta.

Antonio Conte guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in England, but is yet to strengthen his squad ahead of the next campaign.

Sandro, capped seven times by Brazil, joined Juventus from Porto in August 2015 and has since won successive Serie A and Coppa Italia titles.

"We said no to a very good offer from Chelsea for Alex Sandro.

"But we know that we are competing with clubs that are in a position to offer wages that are not rational for us. And players are always their own boss.

"I do not know how Alex Sandro reacted."

Reports in the national press had suggested Conte had become frustrated with the Chelsea hierarchy over a lack of investment in the transfer market, but Sportmatch understands technical director Michael Emenalo and director Marina Granovskaia are aware of the Italian's targets and are continuing with their recruitment efforts.

    Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has signed a new six-year contract at the club but will spend the 2017-18 campaign on loan with Stoke City, the Premier League champions said on Friday.

    The 22-year-old France international has made 71 appearances for Chelsea since arriving at Stamford Bridge at the start of 2014-15 season.

    "It is fantastic Kurt has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea," Chelsea's technical director Michael Emenalo said in a statement.

    "He has shown his talent since joining us three years ago, and has returned from a serious injury with a fantastic attitude.

    "Now he has the opportunity to play regularly in the Premier League and we will be monitoring his progress closely while he is at Stoke."

    Zouma featured 13 times for Antonio Conte's side last season, having recovered from a knee ligament injury suffered in February 2016.

  • Chelsea confirm Alvaro Morata capture from Real Madrid

    Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

    Morata had been expected to join Manchester United but that deal fell through when they signed Romelu Lukaku instead.

    The 24-year-old Spain forward was pictured saying goodbye to his teammates and manager earlier in the week.

    Morata said: ‘I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club. I am looking to work hard, score as many goals as I can and to win as many trophies as possible.’

    Technical director Michael Emenalo told Chelsea's official website: ‘We are delighted to complete Alvaro’s signing and welcome him to the club. We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action.

    ‘Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad.’
    Morata has also played for Juventus and returned to Real after they exercised a buyback clause in 2016, but was unable to nail down regular first-team football. The fee is believed to be around £70m.
