From Italy: Alex Sandro part of Juventus’ plans for next season

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United target Alex Sandro is viewed as part of Juventus’ plans for next season, according to reports from Italy.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly targeted a left-back for the summer transfer window and Sandro, who joined Juventus in 2015, is viewed as the primary option for that role.

However, little progress has been made over the last month, although the 55-year-old has signed Diogo Dalot from Porto.

And according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, the Serie A champions view Sandro as part of their plans and want him to begin the 2018/19 season starting on the left hand side.

Left-back is becoming an area of grave concern for supporters. The sight of Ashley Young, disciplined but utterly predicable and rarely a threat going forward, occupying that role all campaign at the expense of Luke Shaw has served as a major source of frustration.

The need for a natural, mid-twenties, energetic and forward-thinking left-back is obvious. The same can be said for the right hand side as well. Yet Mourinho, to the dismay of many, seems content with Young as his first choice and will, you suspect, end up playing Dalot in that position as well despite his preference for playing on the right.
