- Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is on the brink of joining Manchester United from Arsenal
- Jose Mourinho is interested in the striker
- There are report that the striker has agreed a deal with United
Jose Mourinho has succeeded in getting Alexis Sanchez to sign a deal with Manchester United over a stunning January transfer, according to reports.
The 29-year-old whose Arsenal contract runs out in the summer have been constantly linked with a move to Manchester City in this window.
However, they are reports that Jose Mourinho have picked interest in bringing Sanchez to Old Trafford as a last-minute effort to frustrate rival Pep Guardiola.
And Sky Sport Italia are now reporting that the United have agreed a financial package with Sanchez.
A fee agreement with Arsenal would be the only stumbling block preventing the former Barcelona man moving to Old Trafford.
It looked like City would wait until summer, but an injury to Gabriel Jesus means they may have to act sooner than first anticipated.
