Manchester United Football Club have made some stunning signings this transfer window, with Jose Mourinho sanctioning moves for Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic. Both of whom have made an instant impact at the Theatre of Dreams, but the self-proclaimed Special One may not be done.
According to journalist Pilib de Brun, Manchester United are interested in signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this season – in a deal that’d feel very similar to when we signed Robin van Persie from The Gunners.
Utd are interested in Sanchez but AW would rather sell to City supposedly. As for Lemar, can't get a single source to confirm Utd's interest

However, like De Brun says, Arsene Wenger would rather sell to Manchester City than Manchester United. He also adds that there is nothing in United’s reported interest for Lemar.
Apparently, following Arsenal’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool, Sanchez has handed in a transfer request, and to be honest, you cannot blame him for wanting to leave because they’ve been struggling on the pitch recently.
Sanchez is one of those players that’d improve any side in world football. He single-handedly carried Arsenal through last season and was by far and away their top performer. You can’t really fault him for having the ambition and desire to move away from The Emirates to try and win things. I’m just a bit gutted that it looks as though if City make a move too, then they’ll probably get him.
