Manchester United are finding it difficult to complete a deal to sign Juventus defender Alex Sandro, according to a report in England.

Manchester Evening News, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a deal to sign the Brazil international in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United are finding it very difficult to negotiate a deal with the Serie A champions to sign the South American full-back.

According to the same story, Manchester United could use Matteo Darmian to help secure a deal for the 26-year-old Brazilian left-back.

However, the report suggests that Manchester United could be left disappointing with Sandro closer to signing a new deal at Juventus than a move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season after the Red Devils ended up 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City.

Mourinho’s side lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May thanks to Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.

Manchester United have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot in the summer transfer window so far.
