Man Utd join Alex Sandro chase

Manchester United have joined Manchester City and Chelsea in their pursuit of Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

According to the Daily Record, Jose Mourinho has targeted the 26-year-old Brazilian as part of a €90m January spending spree.

Douglas Costa comes good for Juve

Juventus have rarely embraced Brazilian players, but Douglas Costa could be an exception, writes Emmet Gates.

Throughout their 120-year history, Juventus have had a somewhat uneasy relationship with Brazilian players.

Cast your mind back to epic failures such as Diego and Felipe Melo, the pair who Alessio Secco banked on bringing the glory days back to Turin at the end of the ‘00s. The mere mention of Brazilian-born Amauri is enough to send Juve fans into a cold sweat and search for an alcohol-laced drink.

Juve put Alex Sandro on market?

Juventus would be willing to sell Chelsea and Manchester City target Alex Sandro for €60m, according to Tuttosport, as he battles “personal issues.”

The Bianconeri resisted offers of a reported €70m over the summer in order to keep hold of their Brazilian left-back.

However, his performances this season have been disappointing and he was dropped in favour of Kwadwo Asamoah for last night’s 1-0 win away to Napoli.
