Manchester United will finalise the signing of Alexis Sanchez within ‘a matter of hours’ according to the extremely reliable Italian journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio.
Well Reds, it looks like Jose Mourinho and Edward Woodward have somehow managed to snatch one of the best players in the Premier League from right under Manchester City’s noses; and what a major coup this’ll be for United.
Sanchez is right up there amongst the best players in the country, and to be getting a player in his prime is 100% Mourinho. The gaffer loves ready-made players who can come in and make an instant impact and I’ve no doubt that the Chile star will do exactly that.
He’ll score goals for fun, tack on assists for his teammates and work hard for the cause. Yes, the league title is probably just out of our reach for this season, but no doubt Sanchez will have a big say on where that trophy ends up during the 2018/19 campaign. Don’t forget that the 29-year-old isn’t cup-tied, however, and he will be able to play in the Champions League for us, giving us an increased opportunity at going all the way in European football’s biggest tournament.
