Duncan Castles highlights ‘perfect signing’ to replace Luke Shaw at Man United

Transfer Window Podcast Duncan Castles believes Manchester United should target Alex Sandro during the summer as they seek to find a long-term solution on the left side of the defence.

The Red Devils have struggled to find a permanent choice at left-back since the departure of favourite Patrice Evra nearly four years ago and during this period, a number of players including Ashley Young, a winger by trade, has occupied the position.

During the current season, Young has definitely cemented his spot ahead of Luke Shaw, who has failed to impress but Castles believes Sandro would be the ‘perfect signing‘ to bolster the ranks during the summer.

United boss Jose Mourinho has already highlighted that he could be recruiting a Brazilian in the upcoming transfer window and Sandro could perhaps be a strong contender to join the club with Juventus seemingly prepared for his sale.

The former Porto man has done a credible job during his time with the Serie A holders but the club’s reluctance to extend his contract beyond 2020, may lead to his potential exit for a fee in upwards of £60m.
