Manchester United head-coach Jose Mourinho reportedly gave up on signing a Juventus star Alex Sandro during the summer transfer window, a report claims.
The Daily Telegraph reported last month that Portuguese head-coach had been left a frustrated figure, with his attempts to convince the Reds board to sign Alex Sandro.
It was also claimed that Man Utd CEO Ed Woodward would seal a deal for the Brazil international when former Real Madrid boss gives him the go-ahead.
The latest report from the MEN reported that Portuguese manager made Sandro his main left-back target, with Kieran Tierney has been the back-up plan.
However, the Reds apparently decided against any deal for Brazilian defender because they wished to stick to a strict budget.
Journalist Duncan Castles reported that the Reds refused to pay the €60million that Italian giants demanded for the Brazilian, despite chasing the player since the last summer.
In the end, Sandro’s compatriot Fred was the only major arrival at Old Trafford alongside with Diogo Dalot and Stike City Keeper Lee Grant.
