Why Sanchez is the perfect Manchester United signing

Alexis Sanchez is the perfect signing for Manchester United for a multitude of reasons, says club legend Phil Neville.

The Red Devils have emerged as contenders for the Arsenal forward’s signature, with reports suggesting they are trying to gazump Man City. It’s claimed a £25 million bid has been made and they are willing to pay the Chilean more than their rivals in the blue half of Manchester.

Neville has identified a number of reasons why Sanchez would be the ideal addition at Old Trafford:

He’s cheap
-It’s pretty obvious he’s not going to stay at Arsenal, Neville told Sky Sports. -I think if United were going to buy him, £25m would be an absolute snip.
He’s got the quality required
-United missed out on buying Ivan Perisic in the summer, and with that missed out on a winger. I think Sanchez provides the quality, the goals and the world-class ability he has got. He can make Manchester United title contenders again.
It would get one over Man City
-It would be a coup, particularly for United fans, to have a player like Sanchez potentially come to them over City. It would be a strong statement.
He’s got the character for Man United
-The character that Jose Mourinho wants is that of a typical Man Utd player. Skill isn’t always at the top of the list, it’s the determination, character, willingness to work hard, and if you think of these traits, Sanchez has them in abundance.
