Man United now favourites to sign Sanchez after City pull out

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United are firmly in the running to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, with Jose Mourinho believing the club can not afford to miss out on "phenomenal" players like the Chile worldwide.

Malcolm has been lighting up Ligue 1 with Bordeaux, Youtube has a dedicated list of videos showing his incredible dribbling skills and unstoppable long-range shots, that will surely get Arsenal fans tongues wagging.

City remain tight-lipped over a potential approach for Sanchez in the current transfer window but midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said on Wednesday he believes the player would "add something" to the squad at the Etihad Stadium.

The runaway Premier League leaders are reluctant to meet Arsenal's £35million valuation of the 29-year-old and are now not prepared to pay the £5m fee Sanchez's agent is demanding for felicitating any deal.

French side Paris St-Germain have also been linked with Chile forward but Sanchez's preference is to join Manchester City.

During last year's pre-season transfer window, Sanchez and Arsenal almost agreed on a £60 million (AU$103 million) contract. We don't believe in signing a player just to sign a player.

Manchester United's chances of signing Mesut Ozil either in January or in the summer have taken a hit after Arsene Wenger admitted that Arsenal are more optimistic about the German extending his stay at the club. "Apart from that, he is an Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this".

The special fielding and the panic in South Africa's batting has given India a great chance in this Test, but this was a lifeline. But he waited patiently, worked on different angles, switched sides, and kept batsmen guessing with "very little pockets to try".


This season, Mkhitaryan has scored once and registered five assists in 15 Premier League appearances. Incidentally he won trophies with us.

The correct valuation at this point in the players dwindling contract would be closer to £20 + million to make a quick and relatively painless sale.

Malcom has attracted a host of Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, due to his ferocious style of play. "So they want a combination of the two, which big clubs can give them".

Neville, who made nearly 400 appearances for United, feels it would send out a big statement should they beat City to Sanchez's signature.

"Is it is me in charge or somebody else you can only do what is best for club". "I'm always committed. I'm here for 21 years".

"Then he insulted me for a second time, but now I change, and now (there is) contempt and for me, contempt means end of the story". A move to Serie A would seem like a sensible one for the 27-year-old. "Never. Why should I change?"
