Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has had a truly phenomenal year both in club football and in international football for Chile. But the talent-hungry boss of Manchester United appears to be working extra hard to find a way to bring the 26-year-old superstar to Old Trafford.
According to the Metro, Louis van Gaal has made contact with Alexis over a possible move to Man United, with the veteran manager willing to spend as much as £53 million to bring Alexis to the club. The report also stated that Alexis “would even snub a move to Real Madrid to switch to Old Trafford.”
During the 2014-15 season – his first year in the Premier League – Alexis set a personal record with 25 total goals in 52 total appearances. He would go on to win the FA Cup and FA Community Shield with Arsenal, along with the 2015 Copa America for Chile after making the game-winning penalty kick.
Alexis won Player of the Year honours from several publications, as well as the Arsenal Player of the Season and PFA Team of the Year honours.
