Chelsea are ready to revive their plans to sign Juventus fullback Alex Sandro.
The Mirror says Chelsea are ready to make a fresh move for £60million Juventus wing-back Sandro — to prove their commitment to Antonio Conte.
The champions have no intention of losing their Italian manager without a fight next summer, despite reports in Italy suggesting he could move on to AC Milan.
Conte is into the second year of his three-year deal with the Blues, having opted for a substantial pay-rise during the summer rather than an extension.
Juventus rejected a string of bids from the Premier League champions for highly-rated Sandro during the summer.
The Italian title-holders are now trying to persuade the Brazil international to sign a new £5million-a-year deal.
Sandro, however, remains intrigued by the possibility of a move to English football.
