Manchester United transfer news: Sanchez bid submitted, update on Lucas Moura and more, 11th January 2018
Mourinho wants Sanchez at all cost
Jose Mourinho is prepared to fight Manchester City and Pep Guardiola to sign Alexis Sanchez in January, reports Di Marzio.
United's interest in Alexis is not new but the Red Devils have finally gone ahead and submitted a bid, which indicates their intention to sign the Chilean forward.
Unlike Man City who are prepared to wait for Alexis until the summer, United want their man in January and according to Di Marzio have submitted a better offer than Man City to both player and the Arsenal.
Moreover, Mourinho is also prepared to offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the deal to ensure Arsene Wenger negotiates with Man United and no other club.
Despite United's late attempts, Alexis seems to have his heart set on working with Pep Guardiola but his desires to quit Arsenal in January and Mkhitaryan's involvement in the deal could give United an edge over their city rivals for Sanchez's signatures.
Lucas Moura asks PSG to lower their fee
Lucas Moura has decided to join Manchester United according to reports from Skysports.
Moura has played just 79 minutes of football this season and is desperate to quit PSG in January. Despite a whole host of offers, Lucas wants a move to Old Trafford as he feels Mourinho can improve him as a player and enhance his chances of playing in the World Cup.
United are still contemplating a bid for Lucas who is only 25 years old but has regressed as a player in last 12-18 months.According to reports, PSG are demanding £25m for the player while United only want to pay close to £20millon.
Juventus name their price for Sandro
Juventus have suggested all the teams chasing Alex Sandro to first bid in excess of £50million and then expect any negotiations for the left-back in January or next summer.
Alex Sandro has rejected all the possible contract extension offers from the Serie A club and is determined to join Premier League with Chelsea and PSG interested in his signature as well.
Man United, however, are ready to offer Matteo Darmian in the deal whom Juventus have targetted for last few months as Sandro's possible replacements.
Jose Mourinho is still not convinced with Luke Shaw and is targetting a full-back signing in January and hopes to sell both Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian to fund a move for Sandro and Tottenham's Danny Rose.
