Chelsea Set Sight On Alex Sandro As Real Madrid Identify David Luiz As Potential January Signing

manager has admitted that his club could be in the market for players during the January window and defender David Luiz has been identified as a potential target.

Luiz had a massive fall out with Chelsea manager after the Champions League draw with at Stamford Bridge, when the manager was unhappy with the Brazilian’s reaction after being substituted.

There were further problems between the pair following the 3-0 defeat in Rome, after which Conte conducted a heated dressing-room inquest.

To add to his woes,the Brazilian defender suffered a knee injury and doubts remain over the 30-year-old’s future at Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Conte said: “I must be honest, in this moment it’s very difficult for me to answer how long David Luiz will be out. It will be up to the doctor to assess the situation very well and then to take the best decision for the player.”

Chelsea are expected to make another move for wing-back Alex Sandro, who is rated at £60m, in January, a player they failed to land in the summer.

Real Madrid will join in the chase for the Chelsea defender. However, Chelsea will  only sell David Luiz provided they find a replacement for him.
