Man United’s greatest asset in the Premier League in the just concluded season was their rock solid defensive unit but the lack of creativity in midfield and attack seem to be the main reason they ended so low on the table – the Red Devils scored the list goals among the first seven Clubs on the log.
In a bid to remedy this, Jose Mourinho wants to strengthen his squad with Renato Sanchez and Douglas Costa and reports according Don Balon claims Bayern Munich are willing to let the aforementioned players leave in order fund a £52m deal for Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez.
Alexis Sanchez has stalled over new contracts with Arsenal despite being offered a significant increase in wage, it appears that the Gunners failure to qualify for the Champions League would be a major turn off for the Chilean international.
Bayern Munich have a long standing interest in the Chilean striker but their best bet at signing the player is offloading two players in order to raise funds. And the report claims Man United could make the deal easy if they sign Costa and Renato Sanches.
Douglas is widely known for his deadly dribbling skill on the flank but his indifferent form has reduced him to the fringes of the Bavarian Club. Together with Sanches, they will be offered an escape route to revive their career at Manchester United.
Man United may be without Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick after they have surpassed the twilight of their career and apparently wants to quit Old Trafford.
