Milan - FC Porto left-back Alex Sandro is poised to reject
reported offers from Manchester City and Real Madrid to move to Juventus,
reports in Italy said Wednesday.
Gazzetta dello Sport said Sandro would arrive in Turin later
this week after club CEO Beppe Marotta negotiated a 25 million euro ($27.5
million) fee with the Portuguese giants.

Brazil, will sign a five-year deal worth three million euros a season plus
Juventus, who won the league and Cup double last season but
lost to Barcelona in the final of the Champions League, open the 2015-2016
season at home to Udinese on Sunday.
The first major challenge of the season for Massimiliano
Allegri's men is their away trip to title pretenders Roma, who finished distant
runners-up last season, on August 30.For
