Jose Mourinho wants Alexis sanchez to play for United this weekend
In a strange turn of events, United emerged as favourites for Sanchez’ signature last week when news spread that Manchester City had withdrawn their interest in the player.
It has now been claimed that the Arsenal man is close to finalising his move to the Red Devils, much to the delight of many of the Old Trafford club’s fans.
It is believed that Jose Mourinho is looking to get the Alexis Sanchez deal done before Friday afternoon, which could see the Chilean make his Manchester United debut on Saturday.
According to Manchester Evening News, there is a chance that Sanchez could play against Burnley on Saturday in the Premier League.
If United want this to happen, the 29-year-old’s potential switch will have to be completed by early Friday afternoon.
Although the former FC Barcelona star has not been at his best for Arsenal this season, he scored 30 goals and assisted a further 19 strikes in the previous campaign.
