Alexis Sanchez dreamed about playing for Manchester United when he was younger: report

Suddenly, Manchester United are looking confident about signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal; stealing the Chile international from right under Manchester City’s noses.

Now, in an excellent find by the Daily Mirror, it seems as though the now 29-year-old has always had a soft spot for the Old Trafford club.

Back in 2010, an international teammate of his had confirmed that Sanchez wanted to play for Manchester United; before he moved to FC Barcelona.

“All Alexis wants is to play for Manchester United,” revealed an anonymous Chile team-mate, according to Goal, per The Mirror. “He’d give anything for that.”

In my opinion, the superstar attacker is soon to get his wish, almost a decade later. What a story this would be for the Arsenal man who is out of contract in the summer, and what an addition he would be to this Manchester United team.

World-class players are few and far between, and when you have even a slight opportunity at signing one, you should do everything in your power to pull it off.

Thankfully, both Jose Mourinho and Edward Woodward seem keen on trying to push this one over the line, and that’s exactly what they should be doing. Sanchez could take the Red Devils to that next level, and even better, he wouldn’t be Champions League cup-tied, meaning he’d help us on the continental front, too.
