£22m Barcelona Winger On Manchester United Radar – Player Report

If there is one area of the pitch Manchester United don’t need reinforcements, it’s the forward area. With Robin van Persie, the Premier League’s top scorer last season, and Wayne Rooney leading the line, David Moyes also has the like of Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck to fall back on. They also have Wilfried Zaha, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and new star Adnan Januzaj in the wide positions. However, the Express are reporting that the Red Devils are after Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez.

The little Chilean is a frightful player on his day and can terrorise any defender and, in my opinion, is far better than anything they presently have.

The 24-year-old made 29 appearances last season for the Camp Nou side in the league and scored eight goals. He also created 35 opportunities for his team-mates and completed 80% of his passes.

His speed and agility are his main traits, with his tricks and composure up top close behind, and would be an incredible signing for any Premier League club.

United look as though they are lacking a certain snappiness in their attacks which could be filled by Sanchez and his bursting runs, and for £22m, considering the crazy money in football, is a snip.
