Sky Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Manchester United are yet to make a formal approach to sign Alex Sandro from Juventus this summer.
Earlier last month, the Brazil international was highlighted as the prime target for United with Jose Mourinho eyeing a new left-back to replace Ashley Young in the starting lineup.
However, United have since stepped up their interest in signing young Porto full-back Diogo Dalot and Romano has now stated the club are yet to lodge a bid for Sandro’s signature.

United’s interest in Sandro has been well documented in the British press over the past fortnight and at one stage, there were suggestions that a deal could be finalised shortly after the FA Cup Final.
Since then, the news surrounding Sandro has pretty much disappeared with Fred, Dalot, Toby Alderweireld and long-term target Gareth Bale touted as the main targets for the transfer window.
Of late, the Bianconeri are said to have begun talks over a possible contract extension for Sandro and it will be interesting to see whether United step up their pursuit for the Brazilian in the coming weeks.
