Rated as one of the best left backs in world football, Sandro joined Juventus from Porto in 2017 and has made 132 appearances for I Bianconeri over the last three and a half years.
Sandro has won the domestic double of Serie A and Coppa Italia in each of his three seasons in Italy, and he played in the 2017 Champions League final against Real Madrid.
He has started eleven of Juventus’ 14 league games this season, with Massimiliano Allegri’s team already on course for an eighth consecutive Scudetto as they lead Napoli by eight points at the top of the table.
Sandro was surprisingly left out of Brazil’s squad at the 2018 World Cup, but he has been recalled to the team since then and scored his first international goal against Saudi Arabia in October.
Juventus are expected to confirm Sandro’s new deal in the next few days.
