United and City to Miss Out?

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the buzz was that Manchester United and Manchester City were rivals for the signature of a certain Alexis Sanchez

The inference, in the tabloid media, was that the two Manchester clubs were going to go head-to-head to try and lure the talented Udinese player to their respective clubs.

With a fee of 30 million being touted around it would have represented a major coup for the club that was to sign him.

Unfortunately, all those plans could be about to go by the board as it is now being reported that his representatives have held talks with Real Madrid about a probable move to La Liga!

Don't need him. He doesn't add anything we haven't already got. He plays RW/CF I believe in both cases we haven an abundance of talent both up front and out wide. Once again an illogical rumour.

Press speculation, don't you love it? Sounds to me like the lad's agent is doing his job and sounding out all possible interested parties to get the best deal for his client. And famous - I'll grant you that he's unproven in the PL, but do you not think Sanchez is a better player than either Valencia or Nani?

I would still suggest that at this early stage its not impossible that he will end up at Chelsea. Anything is still possible

fcb, in fairness I have seen very little of the Serie A, Udinese or Sanchez however, what I have seen of him he does appear to be a remarkable player, better than both Nani and Valencia. The issue with this argument is though, we're comparing Nani and Valencia's ability who play in the Premier League against much tougher opposition and it's much harder to shine to Sanchez's ability who plays in a pretty average Serie A (am I being a bit harsh here? I mean the top Italian sides are beatable even to the likes of Tottenham!) where it's much easier to look like the next best thing. Bascially, it's not a fair reading.

Don't think you're being harsh, Serie A has been declining in quality for a good while now, not that that means Sanchez wouldn't cut it - after all, talented players can come from lesser leagues, you just need look at the likes of Suarez or Van Nistelrooy. I think Mourinho will be booted out of Madrid this summer for his antics in the recent CL semi, so Madrid may have their hands full elsewhere. Would certainly love to see him at City!

Oh right, yeah haha. Fair dues fcb. Why not Mourinho at City in general interest?
