Manchester United eye Brazilian international Alex Sandro as replacement for Patrice Evra

MANCHESTER UNITED have turned their attentions to Porto's Brazilian international Alex Sandro as they continue their search for the long-term replacement for Patrice Evra.

With Evra set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season United have been scouring the market for a suitable replacement and Sandro appears to fit the bill.

Reports in Portugal suggest that United will go head-to-head with Inter Milan to sign the 22-year-old.

According to Record Inter have already made a £12.5m bid for Sandro turned down with Porto holding out for more after becoming aware of United's rival interest.

Manchester United are eyeing Porto's Alex Sandro

Sandro moved to Porto from Santos for £8m in 2011 having started his career at Atletico Paranaense in his homeland.

He has featured in 41 Primeira League games and scored two goals for Porto, and has also played six times for the Brazilian national team.

Sandro is the latest name mentioned as a possible replacement for Evra, with Everton's Leighton Baines, Saint Etienne's Faouzi Ghoulam, Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao and Sevilla's Alberto Moreno all rumoured to be in contention, while Alex Buttner remains on the books at United.

Yes f**king please.

Ideally I'd take Baines but that doesn't look as though it's going to happen and this guy has bags of potential. He's only 22 as well, he's only going to improve.

Can't say I have watched him but if he is any good then he would be a good capture who should be more in our price range and his age suits our buying policy of buying then young with potential . A left back ,a couple of central midfielders(one if Jones settles there long term) and a wing forward are what we should target in the next two windows . Him ,Gundogun and Draxler would cost us a hundred million pounds but we'd be set for the long haul . It should be manageable with expected inflows ,though meagre,from the sales of Young,Anderson,Buttner and Nani (if we get Draxler unfortunately its him that makes way ) .
