Juventus ignores Sandro’s plea and shortlist several left-back options -Juvefc.com

After a good performance against Bologna, Alex Sandro took the opportunity to express his desire to remain at Juventus beyond this season.

The Brazilian has been at the club since 2015, but his performances have been on the decline over the past two campaigns, while he remains one of the team’s highest-earning players.

So despite his request, ilBianconero hopes management will look the other way, allowing the Brazilian’s contract to expire in June.

The club are aiming for a revolution at left-back and Andrea Cambiaso could reportedly earn a place in the squad if he manages to impress this season while on loan at Bologna.

But surely the return of the young Italian will not be enough, so Juventus will reinforce their ranks with a more experienced full-back.

The Bianconeri could try their luck with Barcelona veteran Jordi Alba, who could be looking for a new experience after seeing his playing time reduced this season.

However, the source believes the most likely options remain Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini.

Both left backs are 27 years old and should leave their respective clubs as free agents at the end of the season.

Replacing Sandro with an even older player like Alba would not make much sense for a club looking to reinvigorate an aging department.

Therefore, Grimaldo and Bensebaini are without a doubt the best options at the moment, since we are talking about two players who are at the peak of their powers and can come for free.
