Alex Sandro is reportedly pushing for a Juventus exit in the winter transfer window, which has now seized the attention of Premier League giants Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho, who has been desperately pursuing suitable players for covering up the left-back position, has now registered interest in the Brazilian. The Portuguese tactician believes the 26-year-old will put an end to the issues his team is facing on the flanks.

However, hauling him over to Old Trafford isn’t expected to be an easy ride, for Antonio Conte has also courted the decorated defender, along with Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, a few reports claim.

According to Daily RecordMourinho has been given the green light to invest in the region of €90 million in his squad next month. Ergo, if for a firm determination, the instrumental gaffer could import the Juventus man with ease.

Furthermore, unless a “really crazy offer” comes in, the Italian club’s hierarchy has advised Massimiliano Allegri to not sell the left-back mid-season, despite Sandro’s interest in departing from the Serie A.

The player, however, is believed to have expressed his desire in moving to England in the future, thereby giving the Premier League clubs a genuine chance.

The Red Devils are currently in possession of Luke Shaw and Ashley Young, who could serve the club by operating on the left flank. Nonetheless, the United boss believes he requires a more reliable figure to operate there.

Therefore, the ex-Chelsea coach might consider selling the duo to create more room in the squad and manage the wage bill, a few sources claim.

An alternative choice for the Red giants is Danny Rose, who has been playing less frequently at Spurs following his surgery on a knee problem.

Provided the yearning Mourinho expresses, the United supporters could actually witness a transfer being materialised sooner or later, featuring a top-tier left-back moving to Old Trafford in a crazy deal.
