City join race for United and Liverpool's 'new Ronaldo' target

Published Add your comment

Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez is subject to interest from Manchester City, according to talkSPORT.

The Italian club are expected to be inundated with interest for the £35 million rated Sanchez, dubbed the 'new Ronaldo' for his trickery and pace on the ball.

After speculation that Liverpool had launched a bid for his services, Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport now reports that City's plans to sell Carlos Tevez may pave the way for Sanchez to move to Eastlands.

With Inter Milan interested in both players, City's willingness to sell Tevez to the San Siro would mean the Serie A side would bow out of the race to sign Sanchez.


Liverpool had been rumoured to have made a substantial bid for the Chilean, who stared at last year's World Cup, ahead of United, who are still looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who was sold for £80 million to Real Madrid in 2009.

It's no secret that Sir Alex Ferguson has been chasing Sanchez since the World Cup, but when asked he refused to be drawn on speculation linking the 22-year-old with a move to Old Trafford.

"I won't comment. But we are interested in many players," he said.

Kenny Dalglish and Ferguson are both expected to put a winger at the top of the transfer wish list this summer, as Liverpool aim to find a player to supply crosses for Andy Carroll, while United are looking for a long-term replacement for Ryan Giggs.
