In the last hour football pundits, fans and social media have gone into melt down over developments on Sanchez. A tweet from Gianluca Di Marzio said ‘United in contact for Sanchez in the last hours.’
This has already sparked attention from all sets of fans involved. Man City fans are threatening to give banter if and probably when Sanchez signs for them, Arsenal fans are debating what they’d prefer (City or Man Utd + Mkhitaryan) and Man Utd fans refusing to believe it, but still hoping.
Sanchez has been heavily linked to Man City since last summer, and have reportedly offered Arsenal £30mil with a £30mil sign on bonus for Sanchez. Despite Di Marzio’s tweet, there’s a number of theories as to what’s happening.
Theory one, Man Utd are attempting to push the price for the player up and not give their rivals a free shot at a great player.
Theory two, Arsenal have themselves leaked the story to push up the price and get City to sweat a little.
Theory three, Man Utd have caught wind of something and they are genuinely trying to hijack the deal to City. Could he be offered the Number 7 shirt? There’s also lots of talk of Mkhitaryan going the other way, which I think would suit Arsenal brilliantly.
Sanchez is the sort of player we are missing, but signing Sanchez would possibly reduce the chances of signing Ozil who many believe is the type of player we’re in more need of. Either way, if we get either of these two players most Man Utd fans would be very happy.
How much probability do you think we could actually pull off this deal under the noses of City? I give it 15%. What do you think? Have your say below!
