Manchester United have done good business before the World Cup by signing Fred and Dalot and getting two important reinforcements that were necessary.
Mourinho knows that if the reinforcements are not brought in United would not be able to compete against that City side in the Premier League and will also not be able to make a mark in Europe.
And Mourinho knows that with the amount of money he has spent over the last two years, he will need to come up with a few trophies in his 3rd season, after going trophy less in his 2nd season in charge.
Defence and midfield will be of utmost priority for Mourinho, and after signing one full-back, it seems like Mourinho wants to sort out his left-back issues.
Luke Shaw and Ashley Young have been United’s left-backs for the last two years, but with Young ageing and Shaw not showing a lot of dependability, Mourinho is out in the market looking for a left-bacl.
Alex Sandro has been identified as a good option and could make a switch to Old Trafford following some uncertain times at Juventus.
If Alex Sandro indeed does make that move to United, Mourinho will have to commended for bringing in two world class full backs in one transfer window at least.
However, Sandro is currently keen on signing a new deal with Juventus but the Juventus management is not sure as of now, as reported by Sky Sports reporter Bridge.
“Sandro would be the marquee signing,” Bridge told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“A friend of mine who works closely in Italy says Sandro is more keen on remaining at Italy and signing a new deal with Juventus.” he added.
Will Sandro be a good addition at Old Trafford?
