Goal brings you all the latest news, rumours and deals related to the Red Devils as the January transfer window heats up
Liverpool enter chase for Alexis
Liverpool are ready to battle Manchester United and City for the signature of Alexis Sanchez, reports the Mirror .
The Chilean’s future has become increasingly unclear in January, with United muscling in on a player who seemed destined for the Etihad Stadium.
And now the Reds are prepared to spend a portion of the massive fee earned on Philippe Coutinho’s sale to clinch the Arsenal forward.
Man United compete with Chelsea for Alex Sandro
Manchester United plan to battle Chelsea for Juventus full-back Alex Sandro, according to the Mirror .
Jose Mourinho believes Juve’s £53 million-rated star is the right man to shore up his defence, although United are unlikely to firm up their interest until the summer.
Alexis to earn far more at Man United than City
Alexis Sanchez will earn up to £60,000-a-week more if he opts for Manchester United over rivals City, claims the Sun .
Pep Guardiola is a big admirer of his former Barcelona charge, but is willing to go as high as a £20 million fee and £290,000-a-week for his services.
Not only will United gazump their neighbours by some £10m, but they are also prepared to offer as much as £350,000-a-week to land the Arsenal star in January.
Mou drops Alexis hint
Jose Mourinho has hinted at a possible swoop for Alexis Sanchez, saying that Manchester United had no plans on signing players this winter but that sometimes chances pop up that can’t be ignored.
“If there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity. If it happens, it happens.”
Red Devils ready €500m Neymar bid
Manchester United are readying a record-breaking €500 million offer for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, according to Le 10 Sport .
Real Madrid were reported to be leading the chase for the Brazilian, but they can only go as high as €400m.
That has left the door open for Jose Mourinho to join the chase and agree to meet an eye-watering buyout clause.
Man Utd to challenge Liverpool for Pulisic
Manchester United are set to challenge Liverpool over the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s US wonderkid Christian Pulisic, claims the Independent .
Pulisic, 19, is already a regular starter with both club and country, and his added value as an icon in the lucrative US market makes him an attractive signing.
And while Jurgen Klopp is a confirmed admirer of the player from his former club, he could face stiff competition from Old Trafford this summer.
‘Mourinho risks Alexis custard pie’
Manchester United’s “gamble” on Alexis Sanchez surprises Paul Merson, who feels Jose Mourinho is risking a “custard pie” if the player ends up at arch-rivals Manchester City.
The former Arsenal forward told Sky Sports: “It’s a big gamble what Jose’s done with Alexis Sanchez, by going ‘I want Sanchez’. Because if Sanchez chooses to go to Man City, that’s a real custard pie to Man United.”
Ibrahimovic wanted by Turkish rivals
Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has emerged as a January target for Turkish rivals Besiktas and Galatasaray, reports fotoMac .
The 36-year-old Swede is currently tied to a short-term contract at Old Trafford which is due to run until the end of the season.
He has, however, struggled for full fitness since rejoining the Red Devils on the back of a serious knee injury and United are being heavily linked with several striking alternatives.
