Hi Eds sorry for dragging this up as I'm sure your probably sick to hearing his name but I would love your opinion on this. Wenger says 'we'll see" regarding Sanchez leaving in January. If he does leave there does this mean it would be more than likely it's a premier league club he'd join as he can't sign pre agreements with them. Or am I complicating things too much. Thanks as always.

{Ed004's Note - Drawing conclusions from what the papers and journalists such as Di Marzio (quite reliable) are saying along with Ed2 comments yesterday it looks like United are seriously competing for the signature of Sanchez in January. Was thrilled initially but concerned about where he fits in the side (prefers to play on left) and his attitude along with his age as well, it may not be as an attractive move as it first appeared}

Ed004 genuine world class player. something I believe we lack. He will fit for sure.

A couple of years out of him if signed. Big shift if it does happen.

{Ed004's Note - But at what detriment to Martial and Rashford? Also united dressing room seems to be a good place to be right now. Don't want anything/anyone disrupting that. However signing Sanchez and potentially Ozil in the summer is surely an upgrade on Miki and Ibra}

Ed004 I totally agree. At first I was delighted but I don't want another left Winger pushing Martial down the pecking order. If he joins I think he'll have to change position.

{Ed004's Note - He could easily be being signed to play behind Lukaku however I would then worry about where Pogba plays because I think Pogba is better as part of a midfield 3 and not sure how we play that with Sanchez and Martial/Rashford in side}

Sanchez left Barcelona because he couldn't be the protagonist within the team. Great player but needs more than that to fit into the Barcelona style (Danny Alves March 2016). why would he consider a move to Man City whereby he more than likely won't be the main protagonist again?
Could it be that he genuinely is interested in joining united? Great signing if he comes. Good energy, skill, hard worker and a bad loser. everything you want in a player!

Is it a case of he plays on the left (and occasionally central) because Sanchez wants to or because Wenger needs him to?

I think he'd fit in perfectly on the right hand side should he arrive, and we would then look very balanced going forward with one of Martial/ Rashford on the left and Lukaku through the centre.

Agree wazza he spent a lot of time on the right at barcelona.

Why are people worried about having options? City have Stirling, sane, Aguero, Jesus, silva, silva, de Bruyne etc and still want him. Rotation is key over a long season. We need more players. Sanchez is genuinely world class and when a proven player in our league like him is available we should do everything we can to make it happen. I’d rather Sanchez, Pogba and Mata/ Rashford with martial up top.

12 Jan 2018 16:46:54
I'm not worried about having options. I'm worried about keeping the younger players happy. Rashford and Martial are young and sitting on the bench won't help their careers. Martial in particular I think would be unhappy with this and if this meant there was any chance of him wanting to leave then I'd say No to Sanchez. However he as played on the right before and it he's happy to do that then great as we're lacking there.

Just don't see the debate. Genuine world class right now. Will be a game changer.

Agree angel agree stand. Jose has put it out there so he must feel we are in with a chance . I was not optimistic when I first heard the rumour but i now think its a possibility but not yet a probability. A very consistent top class performer. If we get him in it would be a great signing.
He would be available in all comps and will provide much needed experience know bow and magic to our attack.
No world cup means he is fresh for pre season too.
