There are reports in the Daily Star claiming that Manchester United could complete the signing of highly talented Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean international has strongly been linked with a move away from the Emirates stadium this summer as had refused to sign a new deal at the club with just twelve months left in his contract with the gunners.
Pep Guardiola is also monitoring the player’s situation as he wants a reunion with the former Barcelona man but reports in the Daily Star revealed that Manchester United have already made contacts with the player over a possible switch to Old Trafford.
The player played his first game of the season for Arsenal as they were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool and when the camera zoomed in on the player, he seemed disappointed to be a part of the gunner’s team. The reports also revealed that Manchester City want to use Raheem Sterling in a swap deal to lure the player to the Etihad stadium.
Manchester United has been chasing Ivan Perisic all summer and a move for Sanchez would be welcomed as the red devils have just 48 hours to strengthen their attacking option. It would be interesting to see how this ends as Manchester City would create a big competition and it is also yet to be seen if Arsenal would want to cash in on the player.
