Chelsea have reportedly asked Juventus to pay €45m for defender Nemanja Matic after initially trying for Alex Sandro.
The Serbia international turns 29 next month and was left out of their pre-season tour, fuelling reports of an imminent sale.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea at first wanted to have Alex Sandro go the other way in a deal worth €70m, but Juve turned them down.
Instead, the Premier League winners noted their price-tag for Matic was €45m.
