Juventus have opened the door to Man United over a possible £60m January transfer.

Jose Mourinho has been very clear about his intentions to explore the winter market once the transfer window opens in the new year - with both comings and goings expected.

Virtually every area for United has been under scrutiny at some point this season as they look to build a side that can compete with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Mesut Ozil has been heavily linked with a January transfer from Arsenal as Arsene Wenger looks set to make a decision on his playmaker's future - sell now or lose him for free in the summer.

Chelsea's Willian has also been linked as Mourinho finally looks ready to give up on Henrikh Mkhitaryan and cash in on the Armenian.

The other area that has been widely regarded as overdue a signing is at left-back, with £30m signing Luke Shaw never looking settled since his move three and a half years ago.

Tottenham's Danny Rose has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but Mourinho may be close to getting his first-choice man.

Juventus are looking at offers for their left-back Alex Sandro, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Brazilian was linked with Chelsea all summer, only for the Italian champions to turn down a mammoth £65m bid from the Blues.

Now, after a disappointing season for Sandro, Juve are more open to selling the player they bought from Porto in 2015.

So open are they, that United may be willing to get their man for less than rivals Chelsea offered just a few months ago.

A bid of £60m will apparently get the deal done, should there be nobody else interested, however, Chelsea will likely be back in if Juve's stance really has softened as Antonio Conte never settled on an alternative in the summer.

If they do go back in for Sandro, then the £60m figure could rise above the bid Chelsea made in the summer as a result of the bidding war between the two English giants - not that either side is likely to be deterred from the player they both see as ideal.

Rose may prove to be a consolation prize to whoever falls short of their main target, although an impressive one for either club as they bid to become the nearest challenger to the rampant Manchester City.
