I disagree in that I think it is an area we urgently need competition. It is physically grueling. Baba coming off an ACL tear as backup for a team trying to challenge for PL and CL titles? I don't think so. Also I had high hopes for Kenedy but he doesnt have the necessary defensive skills and I also don't think Conte trusts him.

I agree we should use our youth as squad players and eventually important players when they are ready but in my opinion we don't have any available to fill such an integral role. I really want Lew Baker to come back and challenge fabregas and Christensen to come back and earn a place. 

Well our priority obviously is to find another striker, winger, midfielder, CB at the moment. So, I assume another left wing back signing might have to wait, as I don't see any urgency to spend 26m+ for that area at this point.

We need to be cold with our assessment as Conte put it. 

Alonso did a fantastic job for us this year but now that we're back in Europe we need to up the ante to make sure the squad is competing at the highest level. Alonso needs to be pushed and Sandro will definitely do that! We need to have fierce battles for positions in order to keep the squad in peak condition

Also, Alonso against world class wingers scares the shit outta me.

Think we could still do the "pushed" thing from rotation with our youngster.

Yes, I agree Alonso still have some weakness and need some improvement, but he did well against big teams in PL this season so far, so I think he has an ability to do that also in CL. 

 

Honestly, I think we need to sign another right wing back more than the left one. Alonso naturally have defensive abilities, while Moses don't have any.

They might stick him on the right would be a good shout

I agree we have to strengthen other areas also, but we saw this seaoson, that wing backs have important role in Conte's system. For this kind of price, for this player, we should definitely try at least. Would be really good signing for the team.

Well, if Conte decided to bring him, so be it, I'm not against it. Just not so sure the rumour is true and we're really after left wing back at the moment, while clearly we have another important areas to be strengthened first.

Anyway, doesn't Sandro style of play is offensive minded one, which Alonso has been good at all this time?

Sandro is a top 3 left back. Proper world class on both ends of the pitch.

I agree that LWB might not be the most important area of the squad that requires improvement, but when excellent opportunities arise to improve any area of the squad we should do so.

I will not believe that, until Sky Ghana reporting it.

To be fair nobody reported anything about Chelsea and Alex Sandro at all. I have no idea why this thread exists at all :D

I hope he decides to move after losing the CL. 

Because to me he was the best in the field for Juventus. 

He still need some improvement, but I enjoyed him in the first half...

This is our most exciting transfer link in years, and we're at 3 pages.

He's Juve's best player. Headlines will sway people to believe otherwise, but over the past year, he has been the most consistently brilliant for them. Dybala has a higher ceiling, but he isn't on fire every game yet. Higuain, inconsistent. Bonucci & co. are always solid, but they're not equal to what they were under Conte. It's hard to say that adding any of their central defenders to our team would improve results & performances the same way Alex Sandro would.
Pjanic would be broken in half in England. 

Getting the Serie A champions & Champions League finalists best player? Yes.
