Manchester United Transfer News: Red Devils Want Alex Sandro in Latest Rumours

By Sports Wire on January 14, 2018

Manchester United are reportedly ready to fight it out with Chelsea for the signing of Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

According to Simon Mullock of the Sunday Mirror, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho believes the Brazilian is the ideal man to solve the left-back issues United have endured so far this season.

Mullock's piece notes the longstanding interest of Chelsea, while also suggesting the Italian champions value the left-back at around £53 million.

"United's interest is unlikely to be firmed up until the summer but they could be prompted to enter the market earlier than planned if [Blues manager Antonio] Conte is able to convince his Chelsea bosses that the 26-year-old is worth the money during the current transfer window," Mullock added.

The Red Devils have had numerous players attempt to establish themselves at left-back this season, although there's been no standout candidate in the berth yet.
