Italian giants Juventus is rumored to be selling its left back, Alex Sandro, in order to bring Real Madrid star player Marcelo.
The speculation is sticking out because Sandro revealed a statement that he wanted to play in the Premier League.
Following Sandro's statement, the Bianconeri will not hesitate to sell ihim on the upcoming season transfer.
At Juventus there are some players who continue not to shine as they should. Among these, negative is the lack of growth of Alex Sandro, an element that in the early appearances in the bianconera shirt seemed destined to become a top player.
But in fact, analyzing the latest years in an accurate way, was not able to do the definitive leap in quality.
Also in the current season, among some errors in the defensive phase and a somewhat discontinuous contribution in the offensive maneuver, Alex Sandro is continuing to disappoint.
And for such a talented back, on balance, this is a real waste. Reason why the leadership of the club bianconero, for several months, is considering the possibility of transferring it to the highest bidder to tack on a more established profile.
Sandro has signed a new agreement with Juventus that will allow him to earn more than 5 million euros a year.
To fill the void of the 27 year-old player, Juventus are targeting to bring in Real Madrid left back, Marcelo.
Although Marcelo still has the remaining four-year contract with Los Blancos, the factor of his closeness with Cristiano Ronaldo who is now at Juventus can make him docked to Turin.
Besides Marcelo, Juventus also anticipated the vacuum left by Alex Sandro by bringing in Alex Grimaldo.
Grimaldo is a Barcelona dropout who now plays at Benfica. Even according to Italian media in Torino, Benfica has given the green light to Grimaldo if he wants to join Juventus.
