Manchester United On The Verge Of Signing Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal's pre-match preparation for their match against Bournemouth was overshadowed by the news that Alexis Sanchez did not travel with them to the Vitality Stadium.

But despite United's apparent eleventh-hour move for Sanchez, sources have told ESPN FC that the club has been quietly attempting to beat City to the player since last August.

According to a Daily Mail report, Manchester United are prepared to make Alexis Sanchez the Premier League's first £350,000-a-week player - with Jose Mourinho pledging to pay for it by sacrificing summer bids for Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale. When at his best, the Chile global is one of the most decisive players in the world, and his pace and skill can upset any defensive line.

'What you want to focus on is the players on the pitch who can do well for the club'.

Mourinho had been keen to make a move for Sanchez during the summer window, but both the Portuguese and United believed that City had a deal all-but agreed for the former Barcelona man.

It is hard to envisage Sanchez staying beyond January, but Arsenal will not sell him unless they can bring in a replacement, with a £35m bid for 20-year-old Malcom expected this week.

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". Hours back Liverpool were seen as one of the potential buyers but now once again it has all come down to the two Manchester giants.

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

Arsene Wenger claims a resolution is imminent after he dropped Sanchez for Sunday's trip to Bournemouth.
