Juventus have reportedly rejected an offer from Manchester City for Brazilian full-back Alex Sandro.

City had hoped to sign the Brazilian on a free transfer in 2016 when his contract with Porto ended and prepared an offer of €6m per season contract until 2021.

The citizens had the opportunity to watch Sandro first hand in Juve’s 1-0 victory on Wednesday night and it’s reported that they still have an interest in the player.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Premier League side presented an offer of 40m for Sandro but it was immediately dismissed by Juventus director Beppe Marotta.
