Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are set to take their personal battles to another level by going after the same player.

Chelsea boss Conte wants to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus and looked set to land the Brazilian last summer, only for the deal to fall through and his rival, Mourinho has now joined the race to sign the highly rated left back.

Mourinho has earmarked the Juventus defender as the man to solve his problem position, despite recent positive performances from Ashley Young and Luke Shaw.

Chelsea have long been admirers of the 26-year-old and boss Antonio Conte would like to make the deal happen in January if possible - providing he can persuade the Blues board to do so.

Juventus are also reported to be willing to sell the Brazilian - providing they can find a successor for him.
