Sanchez waits for Manchester United transfer, Seri linked to Old Trafford move

Sanchez waits for Manchester United transfer, Seri linked to Old Trafford move

Two players! Alexis Sanchez is being made to wait for his move from Arsenal, presumably to Manchester United. He was spotted turning up for training at their facility, meaning that it doesn’t seem like a medical is imminent. United had wanted to use him for their match at the weekend, but it seems like it will be at least another few days until anything is arranged. Sanchez, the vile mercenary, has decided to earn more money because it has been offered by a better club. How dare he? The Telegraph have asked how will United fit Sanchez into their side. Marcus Rashford has been inconsistent...

It’s as if Ed Woodward saying that he wasn’t that fussed about tying Jose Mourinho down to a new deal was all a ruse for the press.

Alexis Sanchez is nearing a...

Manchester United make bid for Alexis Sanchez

Pep Guardiola laughs. Manchester United have made a bid for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, according to a story in the Guardian. United have offered £25m for Sanchez, and also given Arsenal the chance to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan as his replacement. There is some difficulty with the Armenian swapping clubs, as he is on £200,000 a week at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho’s club has offered Sanchez even higher wages on offer from Manchester City, thought to be around £290,000, with personal terms already agreed between Sanchez and City. The United manager is confident of securing a deal...
