Manchester United offer £25m for Alexis Sanchez while out-of-favour midfielder to go to Arsenal: report

Manchester United have launched a bid around £25 million to bring Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford, according to the Guardian.

The Arsenal winger's contract expires at the end of the current season with many expecting the club to cash in this month rather than lose him for nothing. The Guardian claims that the player has already agreed a £250,000 a week deal with City after the club submitted a £20 million offer.

United, however, are said in the report to have put a better contract on the table and have given Arsenal the opportunity to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return, although his £200,000 a week wages could spoil those chances.
