United move ahead of City in race to sign Sanchez

13 Janvier 2018

Arsene Wenger was coy when asked about Manchester United's interest in the Chilean on Friday morning and it seems the Red Devils have powered on in their pursuit of the player.

Sanchez's contract is set to expire at the end of the season and Wenger could lose his most valued player on a free transfer if he is not sold in January. He doesn't need to alert the club. In the last four years, the Leicester City string-puller has won the Premier League title, played in the Champions League, played in a World Cup, won PFA Player of the Year and been named African Footballer of the Year.

But there will be no shortcuts at City for Sanchez.

Jesus was carried off with medial knee ligament damage during the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace on December 31 and the initial diagnosis was that he faced up to six weeks out, leaving him in a race to be fit by mid-February. The fee for Sanchez is rumoured to be around £30m - an extremely small price to pay in this day and age for such a talented forward. I don't know, but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I do not think it is correct to say thing about Alexis Sanchez.

Spanish outlet Don Balon claim Benzema has no interest in playing in the Premier League though and will SNUB both Arsenal and Chelsea.

Ryan Giggs has been interviewed for the vacant Wales national team manager's job, according to Sky sources. You conclude [that Manchester United are also interested] - but I don't want to give you the wrong information.

Jose Mourinho has responded to rumours linking Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, calling him a "phenomenal player".

You conclude that. You could say that at the moment. Is there truth in it? "It would be a strong statement". At the moment, nothing is decided one way or another.

Rappelons que pour tout transfert supérieur à 6 millions d'euros, la Fédération Chinoise impose une taxe de 100%. Pour acquérir l'attaquant de Villarreal , le club chinois avait levé sa clause libératoire de 40M€.

Sanchez would immediately be one of the "Untouchables". "Normally he would stay at the club until the end of the season but we'll see".

And while the Gunners are open to bringing in players, Wenger claimed Malcom is not a priority target. How he warmed up?

City are looking at several other centre-backs and deep-lying midfield players to bring in ahead of next season.

"United missed out on buying [Inter's] Ivan Perisic in the summer, and with that missed out on a winger".

Aside from the old "loyalty" line, there just isn't any sporting argument that makes sense.

Manager Pep Guardiola is aware of Sanchez's desire to join them, but City also feel the player is determined to leave Arsenal come what may this month, so their stance could lead to him joining a rival club.

Of course I want a quick resolution.
