Usain Bolt taps up Sanchez for Red Devils

Olympic champion Usain Bolt has advised Alexis Sanchez to follow the footsteps of Robin van Persie and leave Arsenal for Manchester United, Fox Sports reports.

Sanchez is yet to sign a new contract with the Gunners as he enters the final year of his current deal this summer.

It is believed the Chilean has so far rejected a number of offers from Arsenal and wants something in the region of £300,000 a week, on top of Arsenal demonstrating that they are capable of winning trophies regularly.

And according to Red Devil fan Bolt, not only Sanchez would get what he wants at Unite, but the Red Devils would also benefit from his qualities.

“I know Alexis.” Bolt said. “He plays for Arsenal. He should leave. He would be great. He’s a player who I’ve always said [we need] over the years.

“We need someone who is capable of picking up the ball and creating chances for other people. He’s proven himself to be one of the best.”

Sanchez has been linked with a number of big European clubs in recent months, but United might opt to join the race if further injury problems arise. The Red Devils have struggled to score goals this season, with their top scorer Ibrahimovic, who is now sidelined with a long-term injury, contributing to the lion’s share of the team’s goals.

Reports suggest Mourinho is on the lookout for reinforcements to his forward line with names like Antione  Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and James Rodriguez being mentioned.
