Reports: £45m Brazil Star Back On Mourinho's Shortlist

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly ready to table a bid worth £45 million (R842 million) for a Brazil international, a long-term transfer target of theirs.

Mourinho Hits Out At Pep’s Man City

The Red Devils were linked with Juventus fullback Alex Sandro for much of the window but seemed to pull out of the race when Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain came along.

However, news coming out of Italy suggests that talks between the Italian club and the French outfit have stalled, giving Jose Mourinho and company an opening.

According to Tuttosport, United are back in the market for the South American defender, and are willing to pay £45 million (R842 million) to secure his signature in the January window.

Mourinho is looking to add a few fresh faces to his backline in the next few months, with current fullbacks Ashley Young heading into his mid-thirties and Luke Shaw a constant injury doubt.

It was suggested a few weeks ago that Juventus were not interested in any bids of less than £70 million (R1.3 billion) for Sandro, but it seems the player himself is now keen to leave Italy, which could see his asking price drop.
