Manchester United need a major overhaul but to sign all the players they have added to their wishlist, they will have to sell a few. On loan at Inter Milan currently, Alexis Sanchez could be one of the names which will be sold come summer.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had claimed that Sanchez will return to United after his year-long loan spell with Inter Milan comes to an end. “Alexis will come back in the summer and will prove you all wrong,” the United manager had said back in January when quizzed about the Chilean star as reported by Independent.
However, as per reports in Express, United are planning to sell Sanchez in order to fund transfers for the likes of Jack Grealish and James Maddison. While the United’s links with the Leicester City star seem to have died down, a move for Grealish is in the works, as reported by various English media outlets.
Sanchez has only made eight league appearances for Inter in what has been an injury-affected season for him and has only a goal and two assists to show for from them. Moreover, his wages have been an issue for United as well and it would be a great relief if they manage to sell the 31-year-old.
Highlights – Inter Milan vs AC Milan
Italian journalist reveals Juventus’ possible offer to Manchester United for signing of Paul Pogba
A senior Italian journalist has claimed that Serie A giants Juventus are willing to offer cash plus newly-signed midfielder Aaron Ramsey to English Premier League outfit Manchester United in order to sign their star player Paul Pogba in the summer transfer window. The French international has been linked with a move away from the Manchester-based club since the summer of 2019 when he publicly admitted that he was looking for a new challenge.
But no club managed to meet with United’s valuation of £180 million for the midfielder and in result, he ended up staying with the club for another season.
Pogba has been linked heavily with the likes of Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid and his former club Juventus in the recent past.
As per Italian journalist Nicolò Schira, Juventus are keen to bring the World Cup-winning midfielder back to the club and are ready to offer fee in the region of €55 to €60 million-plus Ramsey to United.

However, it will be interesting to see if United will accept such an offer considering the fact that they are eyeing at least £100 million from the departure of their prized asset.
On the other hand, the news is going to be a disastrous one for the Wales international who is clearly struggling to adjust to life in the Serie A after a move in the summer as a free agent.
MLS club inquire about possibility of signing Lionel Messi in summer
Major League Soccer (MLS) club Los Angeles (LA) Galaxy have inquired about the availability of Spanish La Liga giants FC Barcelona’s star striker Lionel Messi. The Argentina international has been in the news recently after having a public fallout with the Catalan-based club’s sporting director Eric Abidal for his comments regarding the player’s role in the sacking of the former manager Ernesto Valverde.
Following that fallout, there were reports in the media that Messi might consider his future with the current Spanish champions in the near future and was linked with English Premier League giants Manchester City.
However, as per Radio Continental cited by ESPN, surprisingly, MLS outfit LA Galaxy’s manager Guillermo Barros has reached out to Messi’s father in order to inquire about the possibility of signing the six-time Ballon d’Or winner in the summer.
It is believed that Messi has a clause in his current contract which allows him to leave Barcelona for free in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The 32-year-old is being widely renowned as one of the two best players of this generation alongside Juventus’ star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi is a Barcelona’s academy product and has represented his current club in 714 matches in all competitions where he has managed to score 622 goals and provided 261 assists.
Manchester United identify number one target for summer transfer window
English Premier League giants Manchester United have identified league rivals Aston Villa’s star midfielder Jack Grealish as their top target for the upcoming summer transfer window. The 24-year-old is highly-rated in the football community and has been attracting interest from a number of big clubs in England as well as from abroad.
On the other hand, United are looking to overhaul their squad for the future campaigns and they have been linked with the likes of Leicester City’s James Maddison and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho in the recent past.
As per the Athletic, the Red Devils have now turned their complete attention towards signing Grealish in the summer transfer window where they are expecting to face stiff competition from league and city rivals Manchester City.
Grealish is a Villa academy product and was promoted to the club’s senior team in the summer of 2013.
Since then, the England U21 international has represented his current club in 174 matches in all competitions where he has managed to score 24 times and provided 31 assists as well.
In the ongoing campaign, Grealish—who currently has a contract with Villa till the summer of 2023—has been in inspirational form for his club where he has netted nine times and provided eight assists in just 28 appearances.
