Manchester United 'cleared to seal €60m swap deal transfer thanks to SECRET clause' | CaughtOffside

Manchester United could reportedly seal a swap deal transfer to sign Juventus left-back Alex Sandro this summer, with Paul Pogba moving in the opposite direction.

Such a proposal has come up before as a possibility, with the Red Devils long linked with Sandro as they’ve targeted a new player in that position to replace the struggling Luke Shaw.

According to Football Italia, Juventus have a clause in Pogba’s contract that allows them to re-sign the France international for just €60million, plus a player in exchange.

This sounds slightly bizarre, but it’s claimed that this could allow United to finally get their hands on Sandro in a deal that could benefit everybody.

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba back to Juventus?

Pogba has struggled at Old Trafford and could benefit from rejoining Juve, where he played the best football of his career.

The 25-year-old doesn’t seem an ideal fit for Jose Mourinho and one imagines both would be happy to see the back of each other.

Sandro, meanwhile, could be a hugely important upgrade on Shaw in United’s defence and give them a more well-balanced squad for next season.
