Manchester United are ready to swoop for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, while Chelsea defender John Terry is on the radar of West Brom boss Tony Pulis, according to Saturday’s papers.
UNITED READY TO MOVE FOR SANCHEZ
Manchester United are planning a sensational move for wantaway Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.
United are reportedly monitoring Sanchez’s situation after he was allegedly involved in a training ground bust-up with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
The Daily Express claims that Arsenal may decide to cash in on the Chile star, who has one more year left on his contract at the Emirates.
Manchester City, Chelsea, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also in the hunt for the 28-year-old, who is also expected to be the subject of bids from the Chinese Super League this summer.
BAGGIES CONSIDERING TERRY SWOOP
West Brom are reportedly considering a summer move for veteran Chelsea defender John Terry.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis has confirmed the Baggies could move again for the veteran defender after having a January enquiry rejected by the Blues.
The Daily Mirror claims that Terry is Pulis’ top target, with the Baggies boss admitting: “If he becomes available in the summer, we’ll sit down and have a little think about what we’ve got and what we haven’t got and we’ll take it from there.
“Whether the situation changes, whether other people are involved or whether he signs another contract at Chelsea, we’ll have to wait and see.”
