Manchester United have attempted to beat Manchester City to a deal with Arsenal for Alexis Sanchez.

Sánchez has already agreed personal terms worth around £250,000 a week with Pep Guardiola’s side. City had already submitted a £20 million bid for Sanchez but United is now offering £25 million.

Sanchez would also earn more money with United. Jose Mourinho is confident United will win the bidding war for Sanchez.

United is offering Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a make-weight.
