Manchester United could reportedly seal a swap deal transfer to sign Juventus left-back Alex Sandro this summer, with Paul Pogba moving in the opposite direction.
Such a proposal has come up before as a possibility, with the Red Devils long linked with Sandro as they’ve targeted a new player in that position to replace the struggling Luke Shaw.

According to Football Italia, Juventus have a clause in Pogba’s contract that allows them to re-sign the France international for just €60million, plus a player in exchange.
This sounds slightly bizarre, but it’s claimed that this could allow United to finally get their hands on Sandro in a deal that could benefit everybody.
Pogba has struggled at Old Trafford and could benefit from rejoining Juve, where he played the best football of his career.
The 25-year-old doesn’t seem an ideal fit for Jose Mourinho and one imagines both would be happy to see the back of each other.
Sandro, meanwhile, could be a hugely important upgrade on Shaw in United’s defence and give them a more well-balanced squad for next season.
