EPL: Alexis Sanchez should choose Guardiola over Mourinho - Sherwood

14 January 2018

United are said to be willing to spend more on the 29-year-old, though, and according to Hytner, "the latest indication is that he has come to favour a move to United".

"The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn't say much more than this". Misfiring Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan was included in the deal.

They fear that their pursuit of the striker is being used by Arsenal as a bargaining chip to get rivals Manchester City to increase their £20million offer.

The former United defender told BT Sport on the Sanchez saga: "I was having this discussion with my old mates yesterday and today".

And this graphic shows what they look like in United's red as opposed to Arsenal colours. "They're top of the league", he continues. He's a great player and if United can get him, that will certainly give them a chance to win something at the end of the season.

"He knows Pep. He's been with Pep and has more of an idea".

Sanchez's advisers want a £15million signing-on bonus as they believe that Arsenal's asking price of £35m is relatively cheap for one of the world's best players.

"You look at Manchester City and they're so far ahead of everybody else, not just in points but in the way and style they play".

It is likely that United fans will have to wait until August at least before they get to see both Ozil and Sanchez in a United shirt - but this picture surely whets the appetite.

Sanchez previously worked with City boss Guardiola during a stint at La Liga giants Barcelona. Since signing for Arsenal in 2014, the Chile global has scored 60 times in 122 appearances. Meanwhile, at United, he will be assured of an important role as Mourinho looks keen on strengthening his attacking steel to solidify United's contention across competitions.
