Man Utd offer £26m man as makeweight in Alexis Sanchez deal



Manchester United have made a bid to sign Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez, according to The Guardian.
United are attempting to hijack Man City’s bid for the Chile star, who is understood to have already agreed personal terms with Pep Guardiola’s team.
The report claims City have made a £20million bid for Sanchez, which Arsenal have not yet responded to. But in the meantime Jose Mourinho has made a £25million offer.
“Their proposal would also see Sanchez earn more than he has been offered by City, with Mourinho believed to be confident of winning the race despite the forward having played under Guardiola at Barcelona,” claim The Guardian.
Widespread reports have suggested that Sanchez is heading out of the Arsenal exit door this January in favour of a move to the Premier League leaders.
However, there has been no confirmation of a deal from either club, and negotiations are believed to be ongoing with Arsenal understood to want £40million for the 29-year-old, whose contract is up in the summer. Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne weighed in on the rumours yesterday, and according to his latest interview it appears to be a case of ?when? rather than ?if? Sanchez joins City.
?He?s a very good player,? he told reporters.
?Obviously we will see what happens in this transfer period. We don?t have to [think] about that anyway. If a good player comes to us that is better, if he doesn?t come we do it with the team we have.
?We are in a good period already, the whole season. Everybody is doing a good job. When he comes he will add something to the team.?
Mourinho might have a say in that though.
The broadsheet also report that Arsenal have also been offered the opportunity to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan, although his £200,000-a-week wage could scupper the deal.
