Manchester United have won the race for Arenal star Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
For months now, Sanchez has looked set to leave Arsenal for Manchester City, despite a move falling through on transfer deadline day.
But Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United joined the race for his signature a few days ago, making a £25million offer.
And the Mirror say Alexis Sanchez is now set to move to Old Trafford after United agreed a £30m fee with Arsenal for their star performer.
In a transfer sure to shock the Premier League, the Chile international will become the top flight’s highest-paid player. Reports overnight suggested United were ready to pay him even more than Paul Pogba, who is their club-record signing.
And the Mirror say the Red Devils will hand him a huge salary worth a huge £400,000 a week. Arsenal players now expect an announcement in the next few days.
