Chelsea are set to step up efforts in their pursuit of Juventus'Alex Sandro and Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko, as they hope to appease head coach Antonio Conte, say The Guardian.
"But we know that we are competing with clubs that are in a position to offer wages that are not rational for us".
"For Alex Sandro, Chelsea made a very high bid (€60 million)".
"We said no, but today players are masters of their own destiny".
The 26-year-old played a starring role for Massimiliano Allegri's side last season as they went on to defend their Serie A crown and progress all the way through to the Champions League final.
According to Sky Sports HQ, however, Chelsea are confident that Conte will remain committed to the club and expect him to return for pre-season training in the first week of July.
He made 43 appearances last term and netted three goals and also provided five assists. "But I don't know what he [Sandro] thinks about the interest", Marotta said.
Willy Caballero, who will leave Manchester City under freedom of contract at the end of the month, is to join on a free transfer to serve as the back-up goalkeeper to Thibaut Courtois following Asmir Begovic's sale to Bournemouth.
