Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has spoken very highly of Arsenal striker, Alexis Sanchez and suggested that he would be a good replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Giggs did not mix his words, he called Sanchez a brilliant player and a winner and that the Chilean lifts his teammates.
This is what Giggs said specifically
“He’s a brilliant player. His work rate, the effect he has on his team-mates, a winner.”
Giggs also answered a direct question on whether he would like to see United sign the prolific hitman
“Yeah. Jose Mourinho bought Ibrahimovic because he is a winner
“You can just feel that Sanchez would give his teammates a lift.”
Giggs is of course spot on about Sanchez, but let’s be honest, it is very unlikely that Arsene Wenger would allow him to sign for United, the Frenchman has previously stated that he would not sell to a rival, especially United, who signed Robin van Persie, who was instrumental in United winning the title.
If Arsenal does end up selling Sanchez it will almost certainly be to a foreign club, with Bayern Munich reported being the clear front runners.
Sanchez is still refusing to sign a contract extension at the Emirates and if the Gunners do miss out on next season’s Champions League, then it is very probable that he will be sold this summer.
