Marotta: ‘No Alex Sandro talks’

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta says there’s “interest from big clubs” in Alex Sandro but “no negotiations”.

The Brazilian full-back has been heavily linked with Chelsea since the summer, and there have been rumours the English club will make a bid this month.

“Juventus’ policy is that if a player asks to leave, we won’t hold him back,” Marotta reiterated, speaking to RAI in an interview which will be broadcast in full this evening.

“We know there’s interest from big clubs in Alex Sandro, but at the moment there are no negotiations.”

Marotta also discussed Coach Max Allegri's future, as well as the Champions League.

“He [Allegri] still has a two-year contract, but he’ll stay with us for a long time.

“Ambitions for 2018? Last year we missed out in the icing on the cake, this year we’ll try again. The Champions League is always our top objective.”
