Former Manchester United legend believes The Red Devils should try and pursue Alexis Sanchez.
Premier League legend Gary Neville has stated that he wants his former club Manchester United to go ahead and sign Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.
There have been recent reports that have claimed that The Red Devils are looking to hijack their city rivals Manchester City’s move for Alexis Sanchez by offering the Chilean a total of 25 million.
United manager Jose Mourinho personally seems to be interested in the player and wants to bring him to the club as soon as possible. Sanchez will soon be out of contract at Arsenal FC and will be free for next summer. It is reported that Mourinho wants the Chilean to ditch The Gunners and sign for Manchester United instead.
If Mourinho does manage to sign the player within next summer, then it will be a huge blow for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola who have been chasing Sanchez all summer. The former Barcelona player was offered a total of 60 million by Pep Guardiola’s team but The Citizens were not able to confirm the deal, as it fell through in the last minute. Gary Neville believes that his former team, Manchester United should always be targeting high level world class players such as Sanchez.
“I’ve not seen the Alexis Sanchez news, so you have given me something I haven’t heard before, but, from that point of view, United, from a general perspective, should always be challenging for the best players in the world and bringing them in.”- Neville stated.
Neville believes that United are now finally challenging the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in terms of finance and when it comes to buying players in the transfer window.
