Although Luke Shaw has all but forced his way back into the first-team picture, it seems that bringing in another left-back remains amongst Jose Mourinho`s highest priorities.

Lurking in the media this morning, is another piece of speculation relating to a player that is plying his trade in Serie A but could be available for a transfer.

The popular red-top publication, the Daily Mirror, is suggesting that Manchester United are ready to test Juventus` resolve by making a bid for their attacking full-back, Alex Sandro.

The 26-year-old has long been a target for our Premier League rivals Chelsea, however, the West London club had several bids turned down for the Brazilian in the summer.

However, a loss of form has seen the Turin clubs` resolve to keep the player loosened and the general feeling, amongst the media, is that a bid in the region of £60 million could be enough to seal a deal.

But what is your verdict on the subject matter, would bringing Alex Sandro to Old Trafford help close the gap between ourselves and Manchester City?
