Alexis Sanchez Talk

Alexis Sanchez Talk

Transfer speculation can be a wonderful thing.

As well as brightening up the summer months, months which seem to drag without our weekly dose of football, they provide us with some quirky little snippets that can often be contrived as pure fantasy by those who have dreamt them up.

One such rumour, quite possibly, has hit the tabloid press this morning with one tabloid going overboard about United launching a bid for the Udinese winger, Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez, who was rumoured to be a City target, is rated in the £30 million bracket and his agent, Fernando Felicevich, has already sounded out moves to several Spanish clubs, moves that Sanchez isn`t too keen on as he believes he wouldn`t be guaranteed a first team start.

Here at Vital Manchester United we`re not sure that the story has all that much credibility. Sure, Sanchez might well be haggling after a move away from Udinese and there may well be interest from a couple of Premier League clubs, but I can`t seriously see Sir Alex Ferguson wanting to pay that much for a player when he already has the likes of Valencia, Nani and Park who can all occupy a similar role.

That is, unless of course, we`re set for a few departures that may surprise us all.

Your thoughts please!

Don't need him and don't want him. There's too much of a big risk for someone who adds nothing new to the team. We have plenty of width in Nani, Valencia, Park, Giggs, Obertan and Bebe and whilst he's currently better than both Obertan and Bebe they're still developing and may prove many wrong (bearing in mind Ronaldo and Nani both took a couple of years before really making their mark). If we were to buy a winger can he please be left footed.

Like I said in the article, a few surprise departures might herald a move but I think not!

Funny how the press had him nailed on to join Barca, even reporting that he'd agreed personal terrms and everything, only to find a couple of days later...

I would like us to get him but as it is he ain't needed (neither is Young in my opinion), unless of course Nani or Valencia move on.

We dont need him, yes he has great technique, and could turn out to be a real star, but again he could also fail in the PL. Valencia and Nani are already star performers, they money is best spend elsewhere. For once I agree with FCB, acording to the papers he had practially signed with Barca a few days ago, and now he is again all up for grabs, according to the papers that is.

Latest noises suggest the Barca move is back on. With Ashley Young now looking nailed on to sign for you do you think that's the end of your transfer activity now? Slur did say three signings didn't he?
