Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United transfer news: Analysis, fee, wage, Manchester City

MANCHESTER United have joined the race for Alexis Sanchez, according to Sky sources, but where would he fit in at Old Trafford?

It is understood United are ready to pay more than Manchester City for Sanchez and give him higher wages, and it is also thought they are willing to consider involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a potential swap deal.

We check the stats to see how well suited he would be to United – and where he might slot into the side.

WHERE WOULD HE LINE UP?

Round 23

Sanchez is able to play anywhere across the front line, but the most logical place for him in Mourinho’s 4-2-3-1 formation would be on the left, where the Manchester United manager has rotated between Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford this season.

A RESPECTED football journalist has hinted at some ulterior motives behind Alexis Sanchez’s flirtations with Manchester United as Man City prepare to pull the pin on their move for the star.

City had been in the box seat to sign the Chilean, who is running down his Arsenal contract. With a dream move to reunited with Pep Guardiola the major draw card, City were also prepared to break the bank with a staggering financial offer.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

According to Sky in Italy, City had agreed a financial package with Sanchez, for when his contract expires.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The potential deal would earn Sanchez £13m a year ($22.3m) in wages, with the 29-year-old receiving a £30m ($51.5m) signing-on-fee.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

They had also already submitted a £20m ($34.3m) bid in a move to get him in January until United entered the race with a £25m fee offer.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

But according to Guillem Balague, the man who serves to win the most out of Sanchez choosing United over City is his agent.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“City don’t want to spend more than £20m,” he tweeted.

“},{“identifier”:””,”contentType”:”SCRIPT”,”body”:”

On Alexis. City don’t want to spend more than £20m. They have been told the player wants to play for Pep. But United will pay Arsenal/player more. Suggesting City will not bid for him is a way to put him under pressure -Pep or money, Alexis? pic.twitter.com/N7UWaaThQk

No. I am not talking about the clubs, Gary. I am talking about his choice. He wants to play for Pep. But the offer from United will be preferred by his agents. So for him, it is Pep or money

Ballague added: “He wants to play for Pep. But the offer from United will be preferred by his agents. So for him, it is Pep or money.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

According to The Sun, it is not Sanchez who is making the key decisions over his future, but his agent Fernando Felicevich.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Dubbed the ‘King of South American football’, The Sun writes: “the Argentine super-agent has one overriding aspiration: To become the most important football representative on the planet.”

“},{“contentType”:”VIDEO”,”marbleApiEnv”:”prod”,”playerType”:”player”,”videoId”:660029},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

And a key part of his motives is to “not only ensure his client is compensated heavily for his services, [but] he will look to negotiate a high transfer fee AND take around £5m for himself in the deal.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

A higher transfer fee equals a bigger cut of the deal. Higher wages for Sanchez equals a bigger cut of the money. And a bigger agent fee on offer from United is another attractive factor for Felicevich, according to reports.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Felicevich has gone on to fuel more speculation that Old Trafford could be Sanchez’s ultimate destination, following the Red Devils on Twitter.

And Jose Mourinho himself spoke glowingly about the Chilean, labelling him “phenomenal”.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I don’t think it is ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs,” Mourinho said, before going on to add: “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.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

With United seemingly in the box seat for one of the Premier League’s best attacking talents, The Guardian has reported City are willing to pull the pin on their bid.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Unwilling to stump up the £35m demanded by Arsenal, City were happy to wait to sign Sanchez on a free transfer but have been kicked into action by United’s approaches.

“It is understood that the Premier League leaders feel the overall price including transfer fee, wages and agent costs are too high, with City unconcerned that their stance may cause Sánchez to sign for another club in the meantime,” write Jamie Jackson and Ed Aarons of The Guardian.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

When asked about the potential deal, Guardiola refused to get drawn into the speculation.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I understand completely this question, I understand you are doing your job, but you know my answer,” he said.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I am not going [to speak about it]. I’m focused on Liverpool, believe me. Alexis – everyone knows how good he is, but I am not going to answer about Alexis or other players.”

ROAR coach John Aloisi admitted his players were battling a losing mentality after Brisbane’s dreadful season continued in being beaten 1-0 by the Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium.

An 11th-minute Jason Hoffman goal was all the Jets needed as second-placed Newcastle ­cut the lead of Sydney FC – who play on Sunday against Adelaide United ­- to five points at top of the ladder.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

It was not only Brisbane’s third straight loss but the third match in row in which they have failed to score a goal.

Pressure continues to mount on Aloisi, with his side sitting second from bottom with just 13 points from 16 matches, nine of which have been losses.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

And while the Brisbane boss tried to remain positive, he admitted his players’ lack of faith in their own ability to win matches was hurting the Roar.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“We still believe that we can make the finals,” Aloisi told Fox Sports.

“I know it doesn’t seem like we can because we’re a little bit far (away) at the moment, but we know that if we start winning football games it can change very quickly and the confidence comes back, the belief of winning football games comes back.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“The belief was there (against the Jets) in the football we played, but probably not just that belief in getting a result.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Aloisi’s confidence in his own coaching ability remained strong.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“It’s difficult to take when you do lose but I’ve got a belief in what I do and what the team’s doing, and the club has a belief in what we’re trying to do at the football club,” he said.

“},{“contentType”:”VIDEO”,”marbleApiEnv”:”prod”,”playerType”:”player”,”videoId”:660075},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“What I can do as a coach is make sure the players stay playing to our structures.”

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The Jets took the lead with their first genuine attack of the contest and it was all too easy for the hosts.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Making the most of ordinary work from the Roar defence and a sweet flick by his Jets teammate Andrew Nabbout, Hoffman netted his third goal of the season.

“},{“contentType”:”IMAGE”,”link”:”https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/cdd7ad5d4ad0da1e8729a2ea890c40f9″,”title”:”Massimo Maccarone is well covered by Nikolai Topor-Stanley.”,”originalSource”:”Getty Images”,”width”:650,”height”:366},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

If not for the work of goalkeeper Jamie Young, who was awarded man-of-the-match, the Roar would have trailed by more at half time.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

He made strong saves to deny his former Brisbane teammate Dimitri Petratos and Nabbout before half-time, and was again needed seven minutes into the second half when he tipped a goal-bound Daniel Georgievski strike over the crossbar.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Desperate for an equaliser, the Roar finally started to create some chances, but Connor O’Toole and returning skipper Matt McKay were both wasteful, while a 71st-minute header from substitute Ivan Franjic was well saved by Jets goalkeeper Glen Moss.
