Mou ‘pushing’ to sign £50million star – Man Utd ‘ready’ to deal with club

According to reports going on in the media, the Red Devils want to reinforce their defense in the winter window and two Juventus players are on their wish-list.

As per Calcio Mercato, Man United are desperate to sort out things at the back and for that, they are ‘ready’ to deal with Juve.

The players in the lime light are Benatia and Sandro and the Italian outlet have mentioned that Mourinho is ‘pushing’ to sign the Brazilian international ‘immediately’.

Man Utd’s defense:

Manchester United could only sign Dalot to strengthen their back line in the summer transfer window and the young Portuguese defender has mostly warmed the bench this season.

The Old Trafford club have already conceded 18 goals in 11 league outings and kept just a single clean sheet. Therefore, they must splash the cash to reinforce the defense in January.

First choice LB:

Luke Shaw, who mainly warmed the bench in the past two seasons, has won over Mourinho in the current campaign and regularly starts in the LB position.

However, Sandro has proved his worth over the years and if he joins United, we expect him to be the first choice left back. Last season, in 26 league outings, the 27-year-old star scored 4 goals and provided 4 assists.

Contract and market value:

The Samba star’s current deal with the Serie A champions will expire in 2020 and as per The Sun, he is valued at £50million.
