Man United hopeful to sign £53m-rated Luke Shaw replacement

February 22, 2018

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Manchester United have received unfortunate news in their race for the Juventus left-back Alex Sandro, with the Brazilian planning to spend more time in Turin Juventus.

The Brazil international joined Juventus from FC Porto and has managed to play over 100 matches in all competitions. Sandro has also played for the Brazilian national team on ten occasions and has been associated with a move to the Red Devils due to his remarkable form in Serie A.

Chelsea and Manchester United are allegedly in the pursuit of signing the 27-year-old defender. The Old Trafford club have been told he’s currently not thinking about a move to the English side. The Brazilian also stated that he still has two years left on his deal.

Federico Pastorello thinks that the Brazilian left-back won’t renew his deal with the “Old Lady”, while also stating that he’s looking into the probability of mediating a move to England.

Alex Sandro is estimated at approximately £53m, so he wouldn’t be a cheap replacement for Luke Shaw.

Notwithstanding the English international’s improvement in form, Man United boss seems to be looking at alternative left-backs and might decide to make a move for a more notable talent to challenge their rival club, Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.
