The Spurs left-back has been out of favour for Mauricio Pochettino this season and has been itching to move out of London. And Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United was supposed to be his dream move. Now though, it seems as if the Portuguese manager might just have changed his transfer plans.
According to the Sun, Mourinho is now looking at Juventus’s Alex Sandro as his top transfer target. Mourinho has identified that he needs to plug in that left-back area with a top quality player and for many months it seems as if Danny Rose was the man for the job but now it seems as if Alex Sandro has overtaken him.
Sandro has been a long-term transfer target for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and the Blues had seen multiple bids turned down for the Brazilian during the summer. But Juventus kept blocking the move every time. Now it is being understood that Sandro is eager to play in London and after the Chelsea move collapsing the left-back is looking at Manchester United as a possible destination.
But securing a move for Sandro will come at a cost for Manchester United. It is being understood that Sandro is pushing Juventus to release him in January but the Turin based outfit will not listen to any bids before the season is over. So if Jose Mourinho wants to sign him then he will have no other option but to wait until the summer.
