Manchester United make a move to hijack Alexis Sanchez's City move

Arsenal are believed to be looking for around £40million for Sanchez, with Man City believed to have lodged a bid of £20million. They are also prepared to better City's personal terms of £250,000-a-week. Buying fewer, more high quality targets (such as a Morata) and filling the rest of the squad out from the Academy is one just as viable, if not more viable solution than spending £20-30m on multiple above average players.

United's offer is understood to have been tabled last week but only came to light on Thursday.

Sanchez's reunion with Pep Guardiola will eventually happen at the end of the season as the Chilean becomes a free agent once his contract runs out with the Gunners.

This time it's Alexis Sanchez who is the hot property.

"How long he will be out, I don't know". We might defend this by pointing to Chelsea's financial "austerity", but in that case we need to spend even smarter.

He has become an, and that is on Wenger's mind as he tries to keep hold of his players.

The Chile international almost joined City for around £60m on the final day of the summer transfer window, only for the switch to collapse when Arsenal failed to sign Monaco and France midfielder Thomas Lemar. However, they did not count on United's dramatic intervention.

The Alexis Sanchez transfer saga can't go on much longer, can it? "That's where I like to be", he said.

Presuming he stays beyond this strange season, Mourinho will bring a more competitive United side to the Premier League table next season.

He remains a young man, and it would be easy to understand if the pace of football in England was overawing at first. I don't see that being in the interests of the club to do that.

Our deal is more beneficial as they would get a fantastic playmaker in the mould of Mkhitaryan, though Alexis preference to reunite with Guardiola could prove to be a major factor.

Arsenal could send Mathieu Debuchy to West Brom as part of a deal to sign Jonny Evans, according to the Evening Standard . Sanchez is a hard-working footballer, who enjoys getting back and running the entire field for 90 minutes flat.
