Alexis Sanchez seems ready to leave Arsenal and join Manchester in the coming days. Although contrary to what has been said during the past few months, the Chilean winger is not likely to join City and instead could seal a move to United.

Per several outlets, the Chilean star is set to complete a move to Old Trafford in the coming hours. Arsenal are reportedly happy with the addition of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the deal, and the £20 million fee seems enough for a player who would end up leaving for free in the summer.

In fact, recent reports have indicated that Alexis’ agent, Fernando Felicevich, has already agreed to terms with the club and so has Sanchez, so it seems we are only waiting for the official confirmation and the physical exams to say this is a done deal.

United have a lot of creative players in the final third, but none is as influential as Sanchez. He can form a devastating partnership with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, or even and Anthony Martial upfront.

The Red Devils might be out of the title race, but there is no question adding Sanchez would transform them. When at his best, the Chile international is one of the most decisive players in the world, and his pace and skill can upset any defensive line.
