And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United have continued to keep tabs on Sandro and are closely following developments surrounding him in Turin.
Paul Pogba, at 25 is entering an important period in his career on a personal level and for United - his third season will be the most pivotal of all.
Marouane Fellaini still has a contract offer on the table from Manchester United, the Premier League have confirmed. So I just hope he does get time.
The assumption is that at centre-back and left-back Mourinho wants top proven players while the midfielder and forwards could be useful back-up options with potential like Dalot is.
Even Arsenal, who held talks with the would-be free agent, have reportedly hit the brakes on his signing because of his wage demands - he seems hell-bent on earning what he thinks he's due.
Apparently he's sticking to that though by attempting to make an incredible six signings in one summer transfer window, especially considering it's one that'll be shorter than usual and a World Cup one too.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was crucial to their deal for former Porto defender Diogo Dalot.
