Antonio Conte to make world record offer to make target the most expensive defender in the world


Chelsea are ready to make a fresh attempt to sign Juventus defender Alex Sandro, according to Express Sport.

The Blues have made an official approach to sign the Brazilian last month but the Bianconeri have rejected their offer.

But manager Antonio Conte is determined to bring the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are ready to offer £54million to secure the services of the strong fullback in what would make him the most expensive defender in the world.

Conte has identified the defensive department as an area that needs to be strengthen.

Antonio Rudiger has already joined the club from Roma but the 48-year-old also wants to add Sandro and Virgil van Dijk before the start of the Premier League.
