Juve sell Alex Sandro in January?

Juventus could sell Alex Sandro to Chelsea or Manchester City in January, spending €20m on Roma full-back Emerson Palmieri.

The reports of a summer switch had already emerged yesterday, but today’s edition of La Stampa claims the situation is moving rapidly forward.

The Turin-based newspaper insists Alex Sandro could be pushed towards the Premier League in the January transfer window for over €60m.

He has struggled for form this season and might not fit into the new tactical set-up proposed by Max Allegri.

If Alex Sandro does leave Juventus next month, the replacement would be Emerson Palmieri, who has now recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he sustained in May.

Another alternative would be recalling Leonardo Spinazzola early from his Atalanta loan, but that already failed over the summer after a lengthy tug-of-war between the two clubs.
