Not Pedro – BID ACCEPTED, Chelsea Target Flies In For Medical, Announcement Soon

Earlier this summer when news emerged that Chelsea may be allowing Brazilian left back Luis Filipe to leave the club, many left backs were linked to the club as a potential replacement. One particular name that I was happy that was linked with a move to Stamford bridge is FC Porto’s defender Alex Sandro, another Brazilian.

I was particularly happy not because he is Brazilian, I was happy because he is the type of player that Chelsea could do with in the left back position. He is simply a very reliable defender, he marvellously combines his primary defensive duties with a strong overlapping runs.

However, after signing Baba Rahman, Chelsea do not need Sandro any more but rather the player is off to Juventus. According to reports, a bid has been accepted by Porto from Juvent for the player who has this afternoon ( according to reports ), flown to Italy to undergo a medical with the Italian champions.

We may never get to know whether Chelsea was ever interested in him or not but one thing is fact, Juventus are getting a very quality player and he could well have been Chelsea’s replacement for Luis Filipe.
