Alex Sandro skips Porto training

Alex Sandro did not train with Porto today, as the full-back’s move to Juventus draws closer.

The Dragões are preparing for this weekend’s clash with Maritimo, but A Bola notes that the Brazilian was not present for today’s session.

Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports that the Bianconeri are working to conclude the transfer by the end of the day, allowing Alex Sandro to fly to Turin for a medical.

A Bola believes Porto will give an update on the player’s situation after the training session, so confirmation of the transfer could be close.

The 24-year-old is on the verge of completing a move worth around €22m, and is expected to sign a five-year contract worth €2.5m per season.
