Chelsea target Alex Sandro battles Lionel Messi in the Champions League

Chelsea target Alex Sandro is still refusing to sign a new contract with Juventus, according to reports in Italy.
The left-back has been in talks with the Italian champions over fresh terms since September.
Chelsea tried and failed to sign the Brazilian in the summer and Juve wanted to reward him for staying with a hefty pay rise.
But, according to Calciomercato, Sandro is still rejecting the chance to put pen to paper on a contract extension.
The 26-year-old is reportedly haggling over bonuses and the duration of the deal, with other areas having been provisionally agreed.
That news will come as a boost to Chelsea, who are still tracking Sandro ahead of the January transfer window.
