Reports in Britain claim Alex Sandro wants to leave Juventus, who would be willing to sell for around €57m.
The Brazilian left-back was heavily linked with Chelsea in the summer, but the Bianconeri refused to even consider selling one of their star men.
However, the defender has had a patchy start to the season, which general manager Giuseppe Marotta put down to “personal issues”.
The Juve director insisted that Alex Sandro was “was in full agreement with the idea of remaining with us” over the summer, but the Daily Telegraph believes he wants to leave Turin.
The newspaper claims he has told the club that he wants to leave, and the Italian champions would do business for around £50m [€57m], with Chelsea the most likely suitors.
A January move would be unlikely given that difficulty in finding a replacement, but a transfer could well be done next summer.
While Juventus have denied that Alex Sandro is unhappy, their policy has always been not to hold players against their will.
