Manchester United are battling rivals City for Alexis Sanchez… but where would the Arsenal star fit in best?

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United have sensationally joined the race to sign Alexis Sanchez by tabling an offer in the region of £25million for the Arsenal star.

Rivals City looked to be front-runners for Sanchez and have made a £20m bid of their own for the Chilean, whose Emirates contract runs out at the end of the season, but now face competition from Jose Mourinho‘s side.

But which side of Manchester would Sanchez fit in best? Who would he rather play for out of Mourinho and Pep Guardiola? And what could Arsenal get back in return?  Sportsmail have answered the burning questions as the Manchester clubs prepare to do battle for Sanchez’s signature.

Man United to Go Head-to-Head With Liverpool to Sign Christian Pulisic

The Reds were unsuccessful in their attempts to sign Pulisic in 2016, with Dortmund turning down an £11 million bid before the teenager signed a new long-term contract the following year.

Pulisic has gone on to establish himself as the focal point of the United States national team, and a first-team regular at the Westfalenstadion.

This has seen speculation over a move to Anfield fade, but with Philippe Coutinho leaving for Barcelona this month an as-yet-unnamed replacement has been mooted.

And speaking as part of The Totally Football Show on Monday, German football expert Rafa Honigstein, who has connections with both Dortmund and Liverpool, hinted at another bid for Pulisic.

However, he also believes Jurgen Klopp‘s former club will not be willing to sell.

Antonio Conte calm despite Chelsea missing out on Virgil van Dijk

The 26-year-old’s £75m switch from Southampton to Liverpool was agreed on December 27, with the Dutchman finally sealing his switch to Anfield at the start of the January transfer window.

Conte, who insisted his club would attempt to continue strengthening their squad in the current transfer window, admitted Chelsea worked hard to acquire Van Dijk.

Alexis Sanchez would add to Manchester City team – Kevin de Bruyne

Arsenal accepted a £60m bid from City for the Chile forward, 29, on deadline day in August, but the deal collapsed.

City planned to sign Sanchez for free when his contract expired in the summer but Gabriel Jesus’ two-month absence with a knee injury may expedite a deal.

“If he comes, he will add something to the team,” said the Belgium playmaker.

“He is a very good player,” added the 26-year-old. “Obviously we will see what happens.”
