Manchester United have begun talks with Juventus over a sensational five-player swap deal.
Jose Mourinho is looking to complete his transfer business as quickly as possible. Diogo Dalot and Fred have already joined the ranks of the Portuguese boss, but the latter is yet to complete his move over a work permit issue.
The Red Devils are interested in a number of Juventus players this summer. According to Calciomercato, Mourinho is said to be keen on signing Alex Sandro, Mario Mandzukic, and Sami Khedira.
The former Inter Milan gaffer is ready to part ways with Anthony Martial and Matteo Darmian in exchange for the trio, potentially making this one of the biggest swap deals in transfer history.

Martial is said to be considering his future at Old Trafford, after being dropped from the French squad for the 2018 World Cup. On the other hand, Darmian has received limited opportunities in Mourinho’s two seasons in charge, and wants to leave this summer.
Throughout this transfer window, Manchester United have also been linked with Alex Sandro. The Brazilian will boost Mourinho’s left-back options, which consist only of Shaw and Young at the moment.
The Reds are also in need of another midfielder. Fellaini is yet to agree on a new contract with the club, putting United in a spot of bother. Sami Khedira is one of the players on their radar, as the German has already worked under Mourinho in Madrid.
The Portuguese is also keen to sign a striker. Marcus Rashford failed to grab the chances when Lukaku was out towards the end of last season.
Therefore, Mario Mandzukic, who has been forced wide since the arrival of Higuain at the Old Lady outfit, is likely to jump at the chance of joining United, who are ready to provide him with opportunities.
This five-player bonanza will be really difficult to go through, as Juventus are stingy spenders, and might consider this offer unfair to them, as they will have to give up one extra player.
The Mancunian giants are testing the waters by opening talks with the Serie A giants. If a move goes through, the final deal will look way different then what it is now.
