So, in the last days, we've been linked with Alex Sandro, LB/LWB from Juventus.

In my opinion, he is in top 5 LB's in the world, class player and it would be incredible to have him. But we also have Marcos Alonso who looks very good, improving himself from game to game.

What do you think about this transfer?

Are not we targetting the wrong side? Honestly thing we dont need another LWB. RWB is where we should be concentrating.

In effect you are saying Marcos is better on the left, than Victor is on the right. Well I agree with you, upgrading the RWB position is definitely a higher priority. Even so, as long as it doesn't prevent us targeting more urgent needs, we should look at every opportunity to improve the squad.

If someone on Alex Sandro's level is available though you don't pass that up, i imagine we'd sign a RWB as well as

I totally understand the class of sandro, just seems a bit unfair to Alonso. 

He was improving per game. Ended a season (league) on a high. and now probably will be displaced from the team. Specially in world cup year.

Alonso offers real flexibility.  If I'm not mistaken he has been played as a left sided CB too in a back three over in Italy?  Not sure how good he was, but may be able to fill that hole as a skilled lcb

I reckon with Champions League football next season we will need backup for both Moses & Alonso and I truly believe rotation will be imperative. The full squad should get decent game time especially wing backs due to the excessive demands of the role.

Cold decisions....but yea alonso has been outstanding and I've grown really fond of him, it's a shame but sandro would be an upgrade ,also can't see him getting in that Spain squad even if Jordi alba was out with an injury there are still 3 or 4 players ahead of him

The rumoured £40mil for a LWB is extortionate.

I disagree. 

Firstly, as painful as it is for us to hear for us mere mortals £40M really is nothing for a club like Chelsea. City have just paid close to that for a GK from the Portuguese league..

Secondly, a good LWB is so important. they're basically playing as a LM in our formation and we wouldn't even blink paying that much for a midfielder.
