Manchester United have made a list for the upcoming transfer window to strengthen their defence. And the key position that has got Jose Mourinho wanting to have a quick fix is the left-back spot.
Luke Shaw’s future at the club is unknown, and rumours state that he could be on the way out. That leaves make-shift left-back Ashley Young as the prime player in that position.
With Young likely to feature for the club for just another year, Jose wants a long-term solution. Therefore, he is willing to go all the way and get a player of sound quality.
According to a report in La Stampa, Juventus’ Alex Sandro is the player that could end up at Old Trafford. The Serie A player is believed to be wanting a move away from Turin, and United want to cash in on the opportunity that could arise. But it won’t come cheap.

Meanwhile, The Times had reported that a deal in excess of £50m could tempt Juve in selling the Brazilian.
Things are expected to go quickly, as Jose wants the deal to be finalised once United play against Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 19 at Wembley.
The former FC Porto player has played a total of 113 games for the Italian champions, netting nine goals in return. His experience in the Champions League will be of help for United, who want to make a statement next season.
Since last season, Sandro was reported to be unhappy at Juve, and wanted a move. But now, with the possibility of Matteo Darmian joining the Italian side, it opens the gate for Sandro to make the switch to Old Trafford.
During his time with the Old Lady, the player has helped the Bianconeri to three consecutive Coppa Italia and Scudetto doubles.
