United to announce first signing of the summer after FA Cup final

Manchester United will announce the signing of Juventus defender Alex Sandro after the FA Cup final this weekend, according to reports.

The Red Devils take on Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday afternoon as Jose Mourinho’s side look to sign off the season with a piece of silverware.

Mourinho is keen to bolster his side ahead of next season in order to amount a challenge for the Premier League title.

And the Portuguese could announce his first signing of the summer as soon as the weekend in the form of Alex Sandro.

The Times report Sandro will be unveiled as a United player after completing a £50 million switch from Serie A Champions Juventus.

United are believed to have beat rivals Chelsea to his signature.

The Brazilian has been a long-term target for United, who have been without a first-choice left back this season.

Ashley Young assumed the role for much of the campaign, and while he received many plaudits for his performances throughout the year, the Englishman has only one year left on his contract at Old Trafford.

The club’s other options in what has become a problem position are Luke Shaw and Daley Blind – both of whom are expected to leave the club this summer.
