Alex Sandro is “very happy to continue being part of the Juventus family” after a contract extension made him the 10th highest-paid Serie A player.
The Brazilian put pen to paper today on a new deal to June 2023, believed to be worth around €5m per year.
That is a significant increase on his previous salary of €2.8m per year.
“I thank all the people who helped me arrive where I am today,” wrote Alex Sandro on Instagram.
“I am very happy to continue being part of the Juventus family.”
This wage puts the full-back in the top 10 for Serie A salaries, on a par with Juventus teammate Emre Can.
In fact, of the top 10 highest-paid players in Italy, eight are currently at Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Miralem Pjanic, Douglas Costa, Sami Khedira, Leonardo Bonucci, Emre Can and Alex Sandro.
The only outliers are playing for Milan, specifically second-place Gonzalo Higuain on €8.5m per year (on loan from Juventus with option to buy) and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in fifth on €6m.
