Alex Sandro Nears United Switch; Deal To Be Completed This Week
Manchester United have relatively been a quiet club so far this summer window and that hasn’t gone well with the club’s faithfuls around the world.
The Red Devils have only managed to sign three players this month unlike their rivals who are presently in the mood to sign new players.
However there is a great news that the fans will be happy to hear and this is the report from TeamTalk, who are claiming that Mourinho is on the brink of announcing the signing of Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro.
According to the site, the Red Devils have reached a £60m agreement with Juventus for the 27-year-old full-back and they might officially unveil him before the end of this week.
Manchester United lacked a natural left-back during last season, though, Ashley Young stepped into the position but wasn’t as brilliant as the Juventus star.
Luke Shaw, who was expected to play the role failed to live up to expectations and he was subsequently left out of the starting lineup by José Mourinho.
Alex Sandro will surely be a great addition to the team as he would provide more crosses into opponents 18-yard box for strikers – Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku ; even Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba – to score.
If reports from the source is anything to go by, the Brazilian will be at Old Trafford for his medical later in the week and he will be offered a five-year contract, should he pass his medicals.
