- Huge blow for Manchester United as Alex Sandro wants to stay with Juventus
- Reports claim the Brazilian's defender was influenced by the arrival of Ronaldo
- Jose Mourinho is looking to add Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic to bolster his squad
Manchester United have been dealt a major blow as Alex Sandro has decided to stay at Juventus, The Sun quoting Tuttosport.
Jose Mourinho is keen to sign the Brazilian from the Serie A champions to his ranks and has made the left-back his prime target.
Paris Saint-Germain were also monitoring the 27-year-old's situation as he looked to leave the Turin giants this summer.
The Italian news media outlet claim the surprise arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo looks to be a game changer for the Brazilian who is keen to play in the same team as the Portuguese superstar.
Sandro joined the Italians giants three years ago from Portuguese side FC Porto and wanted to leave last summer for Chelsea.
But after a poor outing by Tite’s Brazil World Cup squad, Sandro is now hopeful for an improved new contract with the Serie A giants.
Despite adding Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and defender Diogo Dalot from Porto Mourinho has been desperate to add a winger to fit into his 4-3-3 system.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Manchester United have place a bid for Croatia duo of Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic.
The attackers were crucial in Croatia's best-ever tournament run, with Perisic netting in the 4-2 defeat to France in the final.
