Alex Sandro officially extends contract with Juventus till 2023

Alex Sandro has officially renewed his Juventus contract, committing to the Serie A leaders until 2023.

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a transfer in the past two summers, with Chelsea and then Manchester United said to have been interested.

While the left-back decided to stay in Turin, he didn’t sign an extension to his contract expiring in 2020.

Today though the Bianconeri have announced that Alex Sandro has signed a three-year extension.

“‘The fans can be sure of having a player who will always give 100% to get the win’,” the statement begins.

“These were the words spoken by Alex Sandro in 2015 when he was presented as a Bianconeri player.

“Never could a truer word be said about the Brazilian, who today has pledged to continue that will by committing himself to Juventus until 2023.”

Sandro has started eleven of Juventus’ 14 league games this season, with Massimiliano Allegri’s team already on course for an eighth consecutive Scudetto as they lead Napoli by eight points at the top of the table.

He was surprisingly left out of Brazil’s squad at the 2018 World Cup, but he has been recalled to the team since then and scored his first international goal against Saudi Arabia in October.
