Chelsea to compete against Spanish Giants for Tottenham midfielder

Sandro has put in some commanding performances this season and the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea are reportedly interestedReports from West London are suggesting that Chelsea are looking to go head to head with Spanish giants Real Madrid in their pursuit of Tottenham’s defensive midfielder Sandro.

The Brazilian has made some excellent performances this season and most notably in the Champions League. Having turned only 22 a few months ago, Chelsea see Sandro as a short term replacement for Mikel but long term for Michael Essien.

Mikel has had his fair share of criticism this season and perhaps rightly so. The midfielder has also been linked with a move away to Italy, opening the door for Chelsea to bring in a new defensive midfielder to fill the gap.

Despite Tottenham Hotspur’s insistence that their main stars will not be sold, it is likely that a few of their stars will be sold as they prepare for life outside of the Champions League.
