Man United transfer news: Personal terms agreed with Alexis, €500m Neymar bid prepared and more
United are now favourites for Alexis
Manchester United have overtaken Manchester City in the race to sign Arsenal wantaway superstar Alexis Sanchez, according to the latest reports from Gianluca Di Marzio.
In his most recent tweet update, Di Marzio claims that United have all but agreed personal terms with Alexis Sanchez and all there is left is to agree on a suitable transfer fee with Arsenal. United are likely to offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan in exchange for Sanchez and are expected to offer in the region of £20-25million.
Manchester City’s reluctance to meet Sanchez’s wage demands has given United the window to negotiate a transfer which looks more and more likely to be heading in Jose Mourinho’s favour. The Special One is set to defeat Pep Guardiola on this occasion.
Neymar to sign for United in 2019
Le10 Sports perhaps broke the most sensational news of the day when they claimed to have an exclusive information about Manchester United’s €500million bid for PSG star Neymar.
According to Le10 Sports, Man United are aware of Neymar’s plans to quit PSG in next 12-18 months after Real Madrid’s vocal attempts to sign the Brazilian.
United believe they are in a better financial situation than Los Blancos and are confident of spending beyond €500million on one player and get away with the Financial Fair Play regulations.
As per Le10 Sports, United are planning the 2019 summer transfer window to sign Neymar and until then they would look to sort out their defensive and midfield vacant spots to dominate in Premier League and Champions League before bringing Neymar to Old Trafford.
