Manchester United have stepped up their pursuit of the signature of Alexis Sanchez.
The Red Devils are set to make the Chilean the highest paid footballer in England.
Alexis Sanchez is on auction as Arsenal look to cash in on their prized asset this month.
Sanchez had decided to join Manchester City after this season, where he stands to make about £70 million.
However, Jose Mourinho wants to hijack the deal, and he is prepared to forget about signing Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann.
The Red Devils have offered £30 million plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the Chilean and Arsenal seem to be more impressed by their offer.
Manchester City are refusing to match United’s bid and they remain confident that Sanchez would prefer a move to the Etihad.
Sanchez has been left out of Arsenal’s squad to play against Bournemouth this weekend as he looks to complete his move away.
Jose Mourinho is confident that Sanchez would choose them.
At the moment, the Chilean and his representatives are looking at both club’s offer, they would make a decision on where he is headed before Monday.
