Manchester United confident of signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal

Manchester United confident of signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal

City's stance has put United in pole position to win the race for Sanchez, who is determined to leave Arsenal this month rather than wait to move as a free agent in the summer.

The Chile worldwide entered the final six months of his Arsenal contract at the start of January and had been expected to move to City, with Sanchez said to be keen to join up with Pep Guardiola once again.

Manchester City and Liverpool are also in the race for Sanchez but United have the upper hand because they're prepared to meet Arsenal's demands. So, they want a combination of the two, that big clubs can give them.

Discussions are believed to be underway between Klopp and Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group about lodging a potential bid for Sanchez, although it will be hard for the Merseyside club to persuade the Chilean to move to Anfield due to both City and United being able to offer significantly higher wages than the Reds.

"At the moment their need is perhaps less than Jose Mourinho's need and that probably shows you why Manchester United are so keen on bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford".

As reported by ESPN on Sep.


Jose Mourinho said on Friday: "Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez".

Mkhitaryan has since returned to the fold, but United are aware of Wenger's admiration of the attacking midfielder and his involvement in the Sanchez pursuit could hold the key to United beating City to the forward.

"I honestly believe Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in the Premier League, his confidence is just shot at United".

United have a lot of creative players in the final third, but none is as influential as Sanchez.

He says he feels sorry for Arsenal fans who will have to soon watch Sanchez play for one of their rivals.
