According to the Chilean press, Jose Mourinho called Alexis Sanchez recently to let him know that Manchester United want him.
- Alexis reportedly wants £250,000 a week
- Arsenal signed Alexis from Barcelona in 2014
- Alexis Sanchez has scored 18 Premier League goals this season
- Juventus have also been linked with a move for Alexis
Chelsea are said to be making the Chilean their priority this summer after it appears that talks over a new Arsenal contract have broken down.
Although Arsene Wenger claims negotiations will be restarted once the season is over, with just 15 months left on his current deal, the Gunners could choose to cash in on the star sooner rather than later.
According to El Show de PrensaFútbol [via Sport Witness] – the Football Press Show – in Chile, Chelsea aren’t the only Premier League team that want Alexis. In fact, they’re claiming that Mourinho actually called up the 28-year-old recently.
Pep Guardiola also allegedly made contract with Alexis over a move to Manchester City back in December. However, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager denied this, even branding the journalist who reported it a liar.
