Man United set to sign Sandro this summer
The Times, as cited by the Daily Mirror, is claiming that Manchester United are close to completing a deal to sign the 27-year-old left full-back from the Italian Serie A champions this summer transfer window.
The same article states that United will formally make their move to land the South American after the Emirates FA Cup final clash against 2017 Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
United to battle Chelsea for defender
The Juventus defender was strongly linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge last summer transfer window but a move to west London failed to happen for the fullback.
As per the same article, the arrival of the left back at Old Trafford could spell the end of the career of Luke Shaw at Old Trafford, with the England international defender having failed to win over Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The defender has been in decent form for the Serie A champions this season, netting four goals and providing four assists in 25 League matches to help Juventus win the title.
