Manchester United v Stoke City

Paul Merson has claimed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a huge gamble by showing interest in Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.

Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol confirmed that Manchester United have offered Mkhitaryan as part of a deal to sign Arsenal's want-away striker Sanchez. "They don't have a problem about money or investment and I think it's a good investment because we are talking about a top player".

It is believed that Sanchez is looking to leave Arsenal in the January transfer but Mourinho was silent on the matter.

Neighbours Manchester City are said to have a verbal agreement in place which would explain why they haven't been in a rush to meet Arsenal's alleged valuation of £40 million. Manchester United play quite defensively, but a host of good attacking talent could increase Ozil's chances of points.

The Armenia worldwide has been linked with a potential exit at Old Trafford over the past couple of months or so following a hard 2017-18 season so far.

Pep Guardiola's bid to buy Sanchez collapsed at the end of the summer transfer window and City were widely expected to make another move for the Chile forward.

It seems all but set in stone that Sanchez will only be an Arsenal player for a few more months.

The only plus in this terrible story is the relationship between the player and City manager and the fact that United aren't even close to being as good as City, this season or next.

According to The Express, however, United fear that their interest in the striker is being used by the Gunners as a bargaining chip to get City to increase their £20m offer.

Sanchez nearly joined City for about £60m on the final day of the summer window, only for the transfer to collapse when Arsenal failed to sign Monaco and France midfielder Thomas Lemar.

Sanchez played under Guardiola for one season while the pair worked together at European giants Barcelona.

While it wouldn't be a direct replacement for the Chilean from Arsenal's perspective, it does help fill the void while also potentially guarding against the likely departure of Mesut Ozil whose contract runs out in the summer as well. "And I don't want this to sound bad towards Everton; they could be like Everton".

"But if there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity".
