Former Manchester United ahead Andy Cole has urged Jose Mourinho to go all out to signal Alexis Sanchez over the January switch window.
The Chile worldwide gave the impression to be on the verge of becoming a member of Manchester Metropolis however Man United have swooped in with an improved provide of £25m, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger has since famous that nothing has been determined concerning Sanchez however Gianluca di Marzio claimed on Friday that United have been main the race to safe his signature after Pep Guardiola refused to enhance his provide of £20m.
And Cole believes that Mourinho must reap the benefits of this window of alternative to signal Sanchez this month.
“If Manchester United bought Sanchez it would be a major-major signing,” he said.
“We all know what he did at Arsenal, Barcelona and before that Udinese. We appreciate what a good player he is. He’ll have the choice of a lot of clubs and, if United could get him, it would be a massive signing.”
Man Metropolis have been keen to pay £60m for a Sanchez again in the summertime when he had lower than a 12 months left on his contract, which makes their reluctance to make a £30m bid – the quantity Arsenal need – when he has six months left makes little or no sense certainly.
Maybe there is no such thing as a have to. Possibly the deal is already set to undergo and speak of United’s curiosity is in reality simply speak in spite of everything.
But when there’s any likelihood of a profitable provide for Sanchez and Arsenal having the burden to push a deal by way of, United’s board can not hesitate for a second.
