A die hard Manchester United fan is making claims that Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has arrived Manchester and that he has seen him at the Carrington training ground today according to Daily Star.
The Chile international has been the subject of talks this week, with virtually all sport media claiming he is close to signing for the Red Devils.
The skillful attacker contract at Arsenal expires at the end of the season and has turned down all contract offers Arsenal have reportedly made to him.
Daily Star claims The Red Devils has offered £25m, plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Sanchez services and that the deal could be made official in the next 48 hours.
Twitter user @NwokeMiracle asked the official United account this morning: “Did Sanchez train this morning with United squad?”
To the surprise of the fan, another United fan with twitter name @Mr_fahrenheit86 claimed he saw the 29-year old forward at United training ground today.
@Mr_fahrenheit86 tweeted back “Yes mate I can see training ground from my bedroom window all the players was shaking a players hand hugs etc and he was small ish like Sanchez!!”
When one fan quizzed him on his claims about Sanchez being small, @Mr_fahrenheit86 replied: “About 5ft 9 ish. Sanchez isn’t very tall.”
It’s yet to be seen if the report is truth because report from Daily Star claims talks are still on-going between Arsenal and United.
The major delay for the deal happens to be Mkhitaryan and his agent Mino Raiola.
the super agent is demanding for a fee above £5m while Mkhitaryan want more than the £150,000 a week he earns at Old Trafford and is demanding compensation in the region of £15m from the Mnachester Club according to Daily Star.
Should the Red Devils fails to reach agreement with the Armenian star and his agent, the club could decides to use another alternative means to lure Sanchez to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho desperately want him to strengthen his attack and wouldn’t want Chelsea to hijacked the deal.
