Manchester United would be making an “unbelievable” signing comparable to their swoop for Eric Cantona if they landed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, according to Phil Neville.
He said “I think it would be an absolutely unbelievable signing.
“If you look back at Man Utd’s big signings over the decades, Cantona came out of the hat, [Robin] Van Persie was a surprise, and they both helped United win titles. I think this could have a similar impact. He’s got the character to play at Old Trafford.
“It would be a coup, particularly for United fans, to have a player like Sanchez potentially come to them over City. It would be a strong statement.
“It’s pretty obvious he’s not going to stay at Arsenal. I think if United were going to buy him, £25 million would be an absolute snip.”
City remain tight-lipped over a potential approach for Sanchez in the current transfer window but midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said on Wednesday he believes the player would “add something” to the squad at the Etihad Stadium.
