Diego Simeone is looking to shore up his attacking options and Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez happens to be a target. Simeone is a long term admirer of Sanchez and believes he can get the most out of the Chile international.

The 30-year-old would provide a good variety to Atletico Madrid’s attack.

According to Calciomercato (via The Sun), “Atletico Madrid have joined Inter Milan and Juventus in the race for former Barcelona and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez. Sanchez moved to Manchester United in January 2018, leaving Arsenal behind in a swap deal with Mkhitaryan. However, Alexis has failed to impress in Manchester and the Red Devils are looking to offload the Chilean and his bumper wage.”

Manchester United are preparing to sell their forward should they receive a right offer for him.

Signing the 30-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Diego Simeone.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Atletico Madrid.

How strong that interest is and whether Atletico will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
