Man United on red alert, summer transfer target confirms of ‘desire’ to play in Premier League

Manchester United’s poor summer transfer window will forever haunt Jose Mourinho, I feel.

At the time, one of the players at the top of his wishlist was Juventus left-back, Alex Sandro. Reports back then even suggested that the player had agreed personal terms with the Red Devils, although that deal obviously never came to fruition.

Now, it looks as though United could be back on red alert, with Sandro himself confirming that he has a ‘desire’ to play in the Premier League…

‘I think, one day, who knows what will happen?’ Sandro is quoted as saying by The Metro.

‘I have a desire to play in the Premier League but right now I am very happy where I am at, the club I am at [Juventus], the league I am playing in.

‘So today my only thought is to continue where I am because that’s where I feel happy.’

Sandro is brilliant. The Brazil international is quick, positionally solid and tough in the tackle. There is no doubt that he’d add an awful lot to the current squad, while also bringing some much-needed experience to the table, too…

However, it’d be unfair on Luke Shaw to bring someone in now. The left-back is in the form of his life and has also signed a new deal. Perhaps United’s move for Sandro was a one-summer thing, but it looks as though they have found their answer in their own backyard.

Although it’d be wonderful to see Sandro in United red, you get the feeling that the ship has already sailed, and perhaps he’ll have to go elsewhere to fulfill his dream Premier League move…
