Alex Sandro is set to sign a new deal at Juventus and remain in Italy for a further four seasons.

According to Goal, the Brazilian full-back is closing in on a new contract that will extend his stay in Serie A until at least 2023.

This news comes as a disappointment to Manchester United fans, as the Red Devils were rumoured to be interested in signing the 27-year-old.

Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward will now be forced to look elsewhere for reinforcements, with previous reports suggesting Sandro had already agreed personal terms with the Premier League club.

However, that is not the case and Sandro is expected to announce his Juventus extension in the coming days.
