Alexis Sanchez is being made to wait for his move from Arsenal, presumably to Manchester United. He was spotted turning up for training at their facility, meaning that it doesn’t seem like a medical is imminent. United had wanted to use him for their match at the weekend, but it seems like it will be at least another few days until anything is arranged. Sanchez, the vile mercenary, has decided to earn more money because it has been offered by a better club. How dare he?
The Telegraph have asked how will United fit Sanchez into their side. Marcus Rashford has been inconsistent so far this season, but has loads of promise and talent, so will probably get the chance to see a few more games from the bench. However, both he and Anthony Martial, and probably Romelu Lukaku, will get the chance to learn from one of the best forwards about at the moment. He will likely play on the right of a three behind Lukaku, but that means Antonio Valencia will have to start getting further forward on the wing.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in Jean Seri, who is also wanted by Manchester. He almost joined Paris Saint-Germain before they pulled out of the deal, and the rumour is that they only did that in order to prevent Barcelona getting a clear run at him. Which is unfair on Seri, but otherwise funny.
David de Gea does not sound desperate to sign a new contract, but with Real Madrid apparently sizing up Thibaut Courtois in the next transfer window, United might get lucky and not have to do too much courting to get the deal done.
ESPN think that Mourinho’s next contract at United, if signed, will define his career. Which is a weird way to look at a manager who won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan.
