- Match Analysis
Manchester United seems to be intensifying its efforts of overtaking rivals Manchester City and signing Arsenal’s ‘likely-to-depart’ star Alexis Sanchez.
While Arsenal is trying its best to keep Sanchez at the club, it is being said that Arsene Wenger has realised it will be difficult retaining the star striker in the transfer window, especially with so much competition for him.
When asked about a possible Sanchez move, Jose Mourinho had remained non-committal, although he did admit that for certain players, the club needs to have a ‘try’.
“Sanchez is an Arsenal player. I don’t know but probably this weekend he is going to wear Arsenal colours. I don’t think it is correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.
“At a general level, what I can say is that myself and the Manchester United board, we do not believe a lot in the January market. We don’t believe in signing a player just to do something.
“What we believe is there are some players in the football world where, if you have a chance to sign them, whether it is in January, March or July, then you have to try.
“In relation to Sanchez all I can say, which everyone else says, is that he is a phenomenal player. I feel I shouldn’t say much more than this.”
