Manchester United are set to steal a march over Manchester City in their bid to capture Alexis Sanchez, by opening talks with the Chilean's club Udinese, report

The Serie A club had claimed that The Blues were the favourites to land the winger, who had also interested Barcelona, Juventus and Inter Milan.

But United, who are also chasing Ashley Young to bolster their winger options, are preparing to open talks with Udinese ahead of City, according to reports in Italy.

Udinese owner Gianpaolo Pozzo said on Monday: "I think there is a 50% chance that he will stay in Udinese. However, if he was to leave, I would say City have the highest probability of success."


However his aget Fernando Felicevich told La Gazzetta dell Sport: "An agreement with Manchester City? Sanchez's future is still wide open."

"We're working on it, after meetings with City, today we will have new appointments."

United are preparing to sign Young from Aston Villa this summer, appearing to cover their options on the wing, but it appears that the club want further options to assist the likes of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez.
