Alexis Sanchez has urged Jose Mourinho to sign more players before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Manchester United have been quiet in the transfer window since the World Cup ended, with Jose Mourinho yet to make a significant upgrade to his squad.
The United gaffer is keen to add a center-back, who could lead the defense and reduce the number of shots David De Gea needs to save. The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Jerome Boateng continue to get linked with the Reds.
As per reports, Manchester United executive Ed Woodward does not wish to pay the hefty transfer and agents fees for players this summer. This has caused major problems for the Red Devils, as the clubs know that the Mancunians possess ample money to spend.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Alexis Sanchez suggested that Manchester United need to sign players with experience. The Chilean International gave the example of his former club Barcelona, who recently signed Arturo Vidal.
“At United we have to sign big players, with experience,” Sanchez stated. “Barcelona just signed Arturo Vidal, who is a great player and my team-mate from Chile.
“He is an example of the type of players we need to sign in order to win trophies and compete at the highest level.”
Meanwhile, the centre-back position remains a top priority for Jose Mourinho. There have been talks over a possible loan move for Boateng, with no decisive result in sight.
A move for Maguire or Alderweireld will at least cost £60 million considering their clubs aren’t interested in selling them. The Belgian International could be a player Sanchez would be happy with, considering his experience in the Premier League.
