If the Chilean should eventually end up joining Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, how would the Portuguese tactician utilise him in his starting xi?
Sanchez is a versatile superstar who can effectively play anywhere in the attacking third – although he has mainly played on the left wing at Arsenal.
This season so far in 21 games for Arsenal, he has scored 8 times and has provided 4 assists to his teammates.
This season at Old Trafford, the duo of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have mostly played on the left wing – and they are both doing fine.
Jose mainly needs a player who can play behind Lukaku since Mkhitaryan is battling with form. And we expect Alexis to play behind the No 9 if he signs for Man United.
We should expect seeing something like this:
GK – David De Gea
DL – Ashley Young (or Luke Shaw)
DC – Marcos Rojo (or Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof)
DC – Chris Smalling (or Phil Jones)
DR – Antonio Valencia (or Matteo Darmian)
MC – Nemanja Matic
MC – Paul Pogba
AL – Anthony Martial (or Marcus Rashford)
AC – Alexis Sanchez
AR – Jesse Lingard (or Juan Mata)
FC – Romelu Lukaku (or Zlatan Ibrahimovic)
