UCL giants £100,000-a-week star edging closer to Man United move

Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of securing the services of Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro from Juventus, it has been stated.

Jose Mourinho has given high priority to signing a new first team full-back after Luke Shaw failed to make an impression and the club have been keeping a close eye on a number of alternatives.

Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon and Celtic defender Kieran Tierney are believed to be their other goals, but Mourinho has reportedly gone with the option of the more experienced Brazilian Alex Sandro.

The Old Lady are reportedly expecting to finalise a deal to sell Sandro to Manchester United at the end of their respective campaigns, and it has been stated that an announcement could be in the pipeline.

According to the Italian daily newspaper La Stampa, Manchester United could announce a deal to land the 27-year-old from the Serie A giants following their FA Cup final versus Chelsea this weekend.

Alex Sandro could also have a complete pre-campaign with Manchester United should Alex join as he is not part of Brazil’s World Cup squad.
