According to latest reports from Spain, United are now lining up a potential €80million to win the race for Sandro’s signature.

It seems Juve could be willing to sanction this sale as they want to replace the defender anyway by bringing in Marcelo from Real Madrid.

This has given Man Utd the green light to try to negotiate a deal for Sandro, who could be seen as an upgrade on Luke Shaw at left-back.
