Why Manchester United Should Break The Bank And Sign Alexis Sanchez Instead Of Perisic

Following back to back 4-0 triumphs against West Ham United and Swansea City, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United have registered themselves as title favorites for the new Premier League campaign. His signings have fit in perfectly and allowing the Red Devils to tear their opponents.

The Red Devils, however, are not done yet in the transfer market and reportedly have not given up their pursuit of Croatian winger Ivan Perisic. But a deal with Inter Milan (his current side) looks increasingly unlikely and according to former Arsenal forward Paul Merson, Manchester United should break the bank to bring in Gunners’ attacker Alexis Sanchez, who has refused to extend his stay beyond next summer and reiterated his desire to play in the Champions League as well as achieve bigger silverwares.

Here we have tried to analyse Merson’s viewpoint and have pointed out three reasons why the Chilean will assure Manchester United’s title dreams.

 Experience of Highest Order

Manchester United are relying on youngsters Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial across the left flank. Although they have started the new campaign exquisitely, the lack of experience might trouble the gaffer later in the campaign. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is being used on the other flank and despite being impressive from set-pieces, the Armenian attacker is yet to settle in and perform consistently. Sanchez, who netted around 30 times last season for the Gunners, will enrich United’s attacking third and take them closer to reconquering the league throne.

High Work Ethics

The 28-year old goal machine is known for his high work rate, agility and tireless efforts to leave an impact in every outing. Mourinho prefers workaholic professionals over highly-talented stars who bank on their fancy skills only. The ex-Chelsea boss will have both if he acquires Alexis, as the attacker is regarded for his pace, power, stamina, dribbling, passing and finishing attributes as well. Moreover, the Chilean fits in multiple attacking roles and his versatility will be a massive advantage for the Portuguese tactician.

Scoring Goals Won’t Be A Concern Like Last Campaign

Manchester United already have Romelu Lukaku who is known for his goal-poaching instinct and is tipped to add more than 30 goals this season. Pogba, Rashford, and Martial are also known for their scoring traits. However, the presence of Alexis Sanchez will add more certainty to it. He will create even more chances for the Belgian hitman and it will be impossible to prevent the Red Devils from scoring even if they suffer major injuries midway through the campaign.

A player like Sanchez will enrich any squad and Arsene Wenger has a bitter experience of letting his best resource Robin Van Persie leave for Manchester United who played a major role in their title triumph. The Gunners boss is not supposed to make the same mistake again even if the 20-time champions come up with an alluring offer like the previous occasion. But from United’s perspective though, the cheeky Chilean is the man for them.
