Ex-Roma sporting director: Alisson will join Chelsea for €70m
- Sampdoria director of football Walter Sabatini, who spent 6 years as an official at AS Roma, is convinced over the move
- The Brazilian shot-stopper has been linked to Chelsea, Liverpool, and Real Madrid
Sabatini told Il Corriere dello Sport: "Alisson? He will join Chelsea. I think they are going to sell him for €70 million. You have to sell a goalkeeper for this fee. I don’t think Roma will offer him a €5/6 million-a-year deal. It’s not in their style."
Meanwhile, according to respected Italian source Gazzetta Dello Sport, Anfield bosses lodged a £60m offer to sign Alisson Becker. The report insists Roma turned it down as they value their star at £70m.
Real Madrid and Chelsea are claimed to be after Alisson signing. Both clubs are eager to bolster their keeper position. Chelsea are yet to learn Thibaut Courtois's future and are therefore linked with a potential replacement.
