Jose Mourinho has contacted Alexis Sanchez over a possible move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
His future remains uncertain as speculation continues to grow after talks over a new Arsenal deal were said to be put on hold and while that deal stalls the stories linking him with United are starting to click and gather momentum.
PSG and Juventus are also in the race to land his services, but Mourinho wants to take Sanchez to Old Trafford, as a player that’s clearly proven his talent in the Premier League.
El Show de Prensafutbol claim Sanchez received a call off Mourinho and Pep Guardiola as he’s currently unhappy with his time at Arsenal, claiming he wants to win trophies.
Sanchez would be an incredible signing at United, but there’s a slim chance he’d be allowed to come to Old Trafford, especially after they’ve learnt from the Robin van Persie situation.
He’s a player that always wants to win and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic urging Jose Mourinho to match his ambition, a player of Sanchez’s calibre would only help take the club back to their winning ways.
There’s a slim chance United would be able to complete a deal for Sanchez, but as we’ve learnt from Mourinho’s first summer window at the club, he can be very persuasive if he sets his sights on a player.
