    He does not have. That the reason Danilo to Juventus collapse in the summer as Danilo also didn't have the European passport.



    I am not sure about British work permit, just saying it's a bitch for a big transfer in January given the window is short and for big transfer, the negotiation usually takes long (unless we blindly pay asking price and take all the risk).

    I think they spent one season together.

    I think I would take him over Rose cause I dont want another injury prone replacing the one we already have.

    Along with the fact that he's a better player than Rose? Rose is very good and if he can get back to his level pre-injury we'd have the best LB in the league most likely, but Sandro is levels.

    I think this "If he can get past his injury he can be the best in the league" with Shaw, Bale and Rose is going too far. Well I dont want to sit around and wait. I want someone who can hit the ground running from the start.

    I was only thinking about Javier Ribalta the other day and thinking about when we’ll see the fruits of his labour?! He was a big acquisition in the summer and I fully expect some of his old players to be here.

    I wouldn't be too disappointed if none of his old players come, I'm more interested in his new players.

    The thing about Arana is that hes better now than Alex Sandro or Filipe Luis when they were 20 years old.
    So is pretty possible that he will be a superior player in few years.

    Compilation I know but looks decent? Good strength defending and going forward (bit like Pogba, tough to knock off the ball), very good technique (megging people easy, whipped crosses, nice first touch), fast, positive mindset (liked the chasing back).

    Lots of the attributes you'd want in a modern wing-back.

    I've only seen videos of Arana after hearing some Brazilian fans rave about him. From what I saw, he has the physical attributes to make it in the premier league (strong, fairly quick and tall enough). He also seemed to make overlapping runs and decent enough crosses. Technically he didn't seem the best though, so a few years in Sevilla wouldn't be a bad move for all parties.

    We were reportedly very interested in Mendy. According to Castles, Mourinho wanted to sell Shaw and bring in Mendy, but Shaw's injury and a lack of funds meant that we didn't pursue a move for him.

    Ribalta would have been key when Juve signed Sandro. Might help us here.

    This is officially my new muppet signing @VanGaalEra :drool:

    Quite tall for a back, which I like as well.

    I don’t remember any other fullback doing a job on Messi like he did in the quarterfinal last season.

    Lets sign him just to have a Brazilian in our first eleven. The fact that he's one of the best left backs in the World is also a positive I guess.

    He's the only other player we're linked to, besides AG, who would instantly improve our first 11. He's an obvious purchase if it's feasible. Didn't think about the Ribalta link. Promising.

    Why is January premature?

    If we can find a quality left back then we should sign them. Otherwise we just giving a free march to Chelsea.

    We shouldn’t sign a left back in January because a 32 year old is playing well in that position is just nonsense.

    So according to you Shaw has slim chances of reaching the levels of Sandro, so then why is January premature?

    The club owes Luke Shaw nothing. He’s had nearly four years to cement the spot and has done very little. Good games against drab like Brugge and Moscow isn’t going to cut it.

    I don't watch a lot of Serie A, but I must admit this has me a lot more excited than Danny Rose. Can't see it happening in January though.

    Isn't it funny that its pretty much accepted that he leaves if a good offer comes in yet as soon as he's linked with us the Caf starts to over complicates things.
    All of a sudden January is too early despite nobody having a clue about his situation until a google search from 3 hours ago.
    Nobody knows whats going on!

    If there's any chance of getting this done in January then break the bank. Natural successor to Marcelo, only a better all round player.

    Sell Darmian and Blind in January, buy Sandro and go into the second half of the season with our FB options looking like this;

    LB - Sandro/Shaw
    RB - Valencia/Young

    This is kool aid, frankly: Marotta did not let Asamoah go last Summer, when he could have got a decent replacement, he will not let go Sandro in January with the Scudetto and the CL still open. Sandro will stay and finish the season.

    We (PSG) could be interested in him but not have the funds available until summer because of FFP.

    I don't see Juve selling in january anyway.

    Read the if we can find a quality left back in January part. Then find out the meaning of the word if.

    Makes way too much sense for us to be interested in him.

    I am not sure your board is going to spend £150m+ this January to get those two or three world class players United still need to go for the treble, so why one only? You do not need anything urgent, Young is doing well and Shaw will have his last call. It is much simpler for the big teams to focus on the several, good free agents entering the market

    Instant buy if available. Potential to be the best left back in the world in the coming years

    Nobody is talking about £150m.

    The rumours coming out we have £90m to spend. Considering Jose didn’t get his fourth player last summer, I suspect that money could be used in January. Plus departures like Blind or Darmian, I’m not sure about Mkhitaryan also.

    Woah I didn't realise he was only 26. I thought he was pushing 30. Maybe I was thinking of someone else.

    Can't see us buying anyone in January though.

    £50m+ for a LB isn't exactly cheap tbf and Sandro has apparently asked to leave and is unhappy at Juve. Saying that, I can't see Juve selling in January.
