Udinese will accept a bid of £30 million from either Manchester United or Chelsea for winger Alexis Sanchez, according to talkSPORT.

The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to United but it now seems that their Barclays Premier League rivals Chelsea have joined the hunt for the Chilean.

Sanchez, dubbed the 'new Ronaldo' burst onto the scene in South Africa last season, and impressed Sir Alex Ferguson to the extent that, a year on, the Scot is ready to make a move for the winger.

United have been devoid of a creative midfielder since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, and the Serie A man would potentially fit the bill at Old Trafford.


Chelsea showed in the January transfer window, as they shelled out for Fernando Torres and David Luiz, that owner Roman Abramovich isn't reluctant to plash the cash, and Carlo Ancelotti might be ready to dive back into the transfer market, months on from their multi-million pound purchases.

After a disappointing season, Florent Malouda is expected to leave the club this summer along with Ivory Coast international Salomon Kalou

With Didier Drogba also on the brink of leaving Stamford Bridge, Sanchez could ably fill the void left by the Ivorian, in what is an ageing Blues side.
