Alexis Sanchez is on his way to Manchester and he’ll undergo his United medical this afternoon, according to the usually reliable Craig Norwood.
The Chile star is all set to become a Red Devil barring disaster during his health checks, and what a signing this will be for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

Sanchez is up there amongst the best players in the country, and to swoop right in and steal his signature from under the noses of Manchester City makes it even better.
We’ve been crying out for someone who can come up big in key moments, and Sanchez has a history of scoring important goals at vital times.
As for his position at United, I fully expect him to start as a right-winger. He’s a superstar attacker who’ll create chances aplenty for himself and his teammates, and the whole dynamic of the team as a whole has improved markedly.
Now it’s just a waiting game for this signing to become official, and we’ll likely see Sanchez make his debut away at Yeovil on Friday night. I’m already counting down the days!
