Serie A champions Juventus have rejected a bid from Chelsea for left-back Alex Sandro, Juve's general director Giuseppe Marotta revealed.
"Our desire is to not sell any of our most important players," Marotta told Corriere dello Sport.
"We said no to a very good offer from Chelsea for Alex Sandro.
"But we know that we are competing with clubs that are in a position to offer wages that are not rational for us. And players are always their own boss.
"I do not know how Alex Sandro reacted."
