United stepping up Alex Sandro pursuit

  United stepping up Alex Sandro pursuit Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Juventus defender Alex Sandro as they eye a serious title challenge next season. The Sunday Times reports that a deal to sign Alex Sandro is edging closer with the defender keen to leave the Old Lady this summer. Sandro has been a long-term target for United, while Chelsea have also been known admirers in the past. Juventus would require at least £50 million for a deal to be done this summer in a deal that would match the money Manchester City paid Monaco for Benjamin Mendy. United have used Ashley Young as a makeshift left-back for large spells of this season, with Luke Shaw falling out of favour at Old Trafford. Young has impressed down the left, but Mourinho will look to address the position over the summer. Improving his defence is thought to be high on the list of priorities for Mourinho in a bid to bridge the gap between themselves and City.

JUVENTUS will reportedly sell Alex Sandro if they receive bids of £53million next month. The Manchester United and Chelsea target is believed to be keen on leaving Juve for a Premier League switch next summer.

This does not appear to have deterred United in their pursuit of the left-back, who is also capable of playing in an advanced role. According to La Stampa, as cited by Italian news outlet Calciomercato, United are ready to spend €50 million to land the 27-year-old.

United to rival Chelsea in Hysaj pursuit .
Chelsea could be bracing themselves for a battle with Manchester United for the signature of Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, United are considering a move for the defender as an alternative to Alex Sandro. Sandro continues to be linked with a move away from Juventus, but reports in Italy claim the player is in talks to extend his deal with the Old Lady. Chelsea themselves have been linked with a summer swoop for Hysaj, with Maurizio Sarri expected to be announced as Antonio Conte’s successor. Hysaj is known to have a release clause in his contract with the Naples club, something Sarri could look to exploit if and when he takes over at Stamford Bridge. With Chelsea thought to be closing in on a deal for Sarri, Hysaj is not the only Napoli player being linked with a move. Long-term Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly remains a target, while Raul Albiol and Piotr Zielinski have also been discussed.
