Manchester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson has stepped up efforts to recruit Chilean star Alexis Sanchez from Udinese after the winger revealed he is to leave the Italian club.
The 22-year-old has told his current club that he will not be there next season, which has put the top European clubs on red alert.
His agent Fernando Felicevich admits a move could be finalised in the Summer.
Felicevich said: “Various clubs have shown an interest and he will leave Udinese at the end of the season.
“Despite everything that has been said and written, neither I nor the club have received offers for Sanchez [in January]. But I can confirm he will change clubs in June.”
The news comes as Ferguson has finally lost patience with Gabriel Obertan after some indifferent performances from the Frenchman and amid reports he handed in a transfer request a few days ago.
Sanchez can play on either flank and shot to prominence after impressing at the World Cup. His versatility and flare led to the player being dubbed ‘the next Ronaldo’.
But if Ferguson does land the Chilean he will face stiff competition from Inter Milan, Manchester City and Barcelona.
