Manchester United plan late move for Alexis Sanchez

According to The Metro this morning, Manchester United are planning ‘to hijack’ Liverpool and Arsenal’s move for Barcelona superstar Alexis Sanchez. The speedy winger had an excellent World Cup with his native Chile, and as Barcelona close in on Luis Suarez, also Gerard Deulofeu returns from Everton on loan, his chances will be numbered in Spain.

Sanchez will definitely move this summer, and the Premier League is looking the likely destination for the Chilean at the moment. The current favourites for his signature are Arsenal, as the 25-year old wasn’t reportedly keen on a move to Liverpool.

This is the first time where the lack of Champions League football could come into play, as Sanchez apparently wants to be playing at the highest level of European football in the upcoming season – something which United cannot offer him at the moment.

As with all footballers, I bet Sanchez could be swayed if we offer him enough money. At the end of the day its their job, and nine times out of ten you are going to move to the company/club that offer you more money to do the same thing.

Would you prefer Alexis Sanchez or Angel Di Maria? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.

  1. both of them are good players but i will prefer united go for angel di maria….i think he gat this potential we have been lookng for he is good.

  2. becuause of the lives of our formal players like waybe rooney,carrick,mata,valencia,nani,welbeck, to mention but a few and the new ones we have just bougth i think united are ready this time so they can again go for angel di maria as i had ealier said.

  3. Typical Manchester United attitude – “Uh, uh, throw loads of money at him and he’ll come.” Pah. You can’t even offer Champions League. Or Europa League! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!

    • Clown shows you to be a typical a.b.u fan who would rather troll a utd thread than follow his own side ( who he probably changes with whoever doing best at the min) get a life you idiot we gonna be top 3 minimum this season .Another thing to consider after we get Vidal and probably do maria and a center half how many more will get next season with champions league we make 3 times more a season than other top teams in the premier league so in the eyes of ffp we can keep spending so troll on you sad little man cos I got a feeling you gonna get plenty more transfers to moan at :)

  4. i prefer Di maria to alexis please Ed get di for us cos we need someone like him to hold our wing

  5. How can anyone prefer di Maria over Sanchez. They are both class but if you look at Sanchez he is more consistent and creates and scores more, the stats speak for themselves
