Manchester United have entered the race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, according to reports in England.
Sanchez has grown more and more frustrated with life at the Emirates, and he was also rumoured to have fallen out with Arsene Wenger, as he reportedly walked out of a training session after an alleged bust-up. The Chilean was subsequently dropped to the bench for the Gunners’ crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool, which they ended up losing 3-1.
The 29-year-old returned to the starting lineup for Arsenal’s second leg encounter against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, during which he was seen smirking on the bench after getting subbed off while his team was getting demolished 5-1 on the night, and 10-2 on aggregate.
Furthermore, with rumours of Sanchez’s attitude and behavioral problems still looming large, it looks very possible that Arsenal may end up parting ways with their superstar at the end of the season.
Several European powerhouses have already expressed their interest in signing the former Barcelona man, and Arsenal’s Premier League rivals Manchester United are the newest club to have joined the pursuit for his signature, according to Express.
Jose Mourinho initially planned to make Antoine Griezmann his priority signing for the upcoming summer, but with newly emerging reports claiming Atletico Madrid have convinced the Frenchman to prolong his stay in the Spanish capital, the Red Devils have move on and identified Alexis Sanchez as their new top target.
However, it seems highly unlikely that Arsene Wenger will agree to sell Sanchez to a Premier League rival, especially with Atletico Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain more than keen on securing the forward’s services.
