Jose Mourinho is apparently planning to inflict some serious misery on his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window.
The Telegraph is basically claiming that Mourinho is interested in signing Alexis Sanchez on a free transfer next year.
If true that would seriously upset Wenger, the very last club he would want to lose Sanchez to is Man Utd and it does not end there, it could be a real double whammy if the Mesut Ozil rumours are also true.
United have already been linked with the German playmaker on multiple occasions and like Sanchez, he will be out of contract in the summer.
Arsenal has really messed it up with Sanchez and Ozil and that has invited the likes of United, Man City, PSG and Barcelona to hover like vultures.
There is almost no chance that either Sanchez or Ozil will be signing new contracts, they would have done so already and it is now up to Wenger how their departure happens.
United’s interest may actually play into the hands of their local rivals Man City, if Wenger seriously believes that United will swoop in the summer then he may well countenance a January sale to City to avoid Man Utd getting a top Arsenal asset for free.
It really is going to be an entertaining January transfer window, though maybe not for Arsenal fans.
