Milan - FC Porto left-back Alex Sandro is poised to reject reported offers from Manchester City and Real Madrid to move to Juventus, reports in Italy said Wednesday.

Gazzetta dello Sport said Sandro would arrive in Turin later this week after club CEO Beppe Marotta negotiated a €25 million fee with the Portuguese giants.

The report said Sandro, who has made six appearances for Brazil, will sign a five-year deal worth three million euros a season plus bonuses.

Juventus, who won the league and Cup double last season but lost to Barcelona in the final of the Champions League, open the 2015-2016 season at home to Udinese on Sunday.

The first major challenge of the season for Massimiliano Allegri's men is their away trip to title pretenders Roma, who finished distant runners-up last season, on August 30.
