Chelsea are prepared to smash their transfer record to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus.
The Italians are desperate to keep the defender and slapped a £60million price tag on his head as well as offering him a new deal.
But after a fresh round of talks yesterday, Sandro is edging closer to a Stamford Bridge switch.
He must now to decide whether to sign a new contract at Juve or move to London, although Paris Saint-Germain may make a late swoop.
Sandro, 26, would beat Fernando Torres’ £50m switch in 2011 but may not hold the record for long.
Chelsea are determined to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club and could be forced to pay around £100m by Everton.
The main thing standing in the way of a move is Diego Costa’s refusal to join a Chinese Super League team.
Costa wants to go back to Atletico Madrid despite the La Liga outfit’s transfer ban.
And until they shift his £150,000-a-week wages, the Blues may have to be patient on Lukaku.
The Spaniard was furious when he told he was no longer wanted by Antonio Conte via text.
And he is in no mood to bend over backwards to accommodate the Prem champs with two years remaining on his deal.
Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Roma defender Antonio Rudiger are also being targeted for a combined £65m.
