Man United set to offer £70m plus-player-deal for South-American wing player
Manchester United are reportedly ahead of other clubs in the race for Juventus and Brazil defender Alex Sandro this summer. The player is being tracked by Manchester United and Chelsea since the previous transfer in January but none of them was able to convince the Scudetto Champions to let go of the player.
According to Calciomercato, United are tipped to be the player’s next destination after getting an approval from Juventus’ hierarchy to move out of Turin by the end of the season. In their bid to get their longtime target, Manchester United are reportedly set to offer £70m plus out-of-favour defender Matteo Darmian in the summer transfer market.
Matteo Darmian, who joined the Red Devils in 2014 has endured an unsuccessful spell at Old Trafford and he’s set to move to another club where he will hope to rejuvenate his career. The Dutchman might just be heading to the Serie A giants next season as Calciomercato suggest that he could be included in United’s offer for Sandro.
Despite his dwindling from for the Turin outfits in the second half of the campaign, José Mourinho believes the left-back is the ideal player to provide stiff competition for Ashley Young ahead of next season.
Luke Shaw who was sometimes in the season used as a backup to Ashley Young is widely believed to be leaving Old Trafford after the latest open criticism he received from José Mourinho against Brighton and Holve Albion.
Meanwhile, 20m-rated defender Kieran Tierney has impressed Mourinho with his performance for Celtic throughout the season and the manager has been linked with a move for his Services.
