Manchester United eyeing swoop for team mate if they land top target this month

The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see Alexis Sanchez come in this month. Sanchez is a proven performer in the Premier League and has emerged as one of the Red Devils’ top targets.

According to a report by The Independent, Manchester United will not merely settle for Sanchez if they do land him this month. They will also move for his team mate Mesut Ozil in the summer.

Both Sanchez and Ozil are entering the final six months of their contracts with the Gunners and have refused to pen new deals with the North London club. This means that Arsenal must cash in on the duo or risk losing them for free in the summer.

And Jose Mourinho wants to take advantage of this situation by securing one this month and one in the summer. He will swoop for Sanchez – who was left out of today’s match against Bournemouth – but must battle with rivals Manchester City and Liverpool for the 29-year-old.

And even if Man United snap up the Chile international this month, they will continue to press ahead with their attempts to sign Ozil on a free in the summer. The Germany international worked with Mourinho at Real Madrid and could be added to the United squad this summer.

The Verdict

Both Sanchez and Ozil are proven in the Premier League and they would be excellent cheap additions for Manchester United. As Mourinho continues to strive for domestic success with the Red Devils, this type of signing would be certainly improve their title credentials. As for Arsenal, a major summer revamp is likely to be necessary.
