In a shocker of a news, Manchester United might just be planning a coup by trying to sign Alexis Sanchez from right under Manchester City’s noses.

Alexis Sanchez looked all set to join Manchester City this January and reports claimed that the Chilean International had already agreed on a deal with the blue half of Manchester.

But now a tweet from Gianluca Di Marzio has sent the social media into a frenzy.

Just minutes ago the Sky Sports Italy journalist reported that Manchester United have been in contact with Arsenal for a potential transfer of Alexis Sanchez.

Are Manchester United really interested in Alexis Sanchez or is Wenger trying to squeeze some extra cash out of Manchester City?
