Manchester United Make Sudden Swoop For Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez [Di Marzio]

Could Manchester United scupper Manchester City’s signing of Alexis Sanchez?

With reports suggesting that Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez had already agreed personal terms on a deal that would see him signing for Manchester City this summer, fascinating reports are now emerging linking the Chilean with a move to Old Trafford.

With his contract due to expire this summer, the former Barcelona star is apparently available for the reasonable transfer fee of £35 million.

Manchester United currently sit 15 points behind their local rivals in the Premier League table and an attacker of Sanchez’s ability would certainly give Mourinho’s side a huge boost as they look to gain some ground at home and also challenge for the Champions League.

With the news being broken by the reliable Gianluca Di Marzio, it seems that there is some truth to United’s sudden interest in the Arsenal star. However, with the Chile international having (reportedly) already agreed terms on a deal that would see him joining Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, it remains to be seen if Sanchez has any interest in joining Mourinho’s Red Devils.

In a turn that will certainly interest Arsenal fans, however, The Guardian are now reporting that United are willing to include the misfiring but highly rated Henrikh Mkhitaryan should the Gunners be willing to do a deal in the current window.

Check out some of the best reaction to the fascinating transfer story below.
