Man Utd news: Mourinho identifies top January target, Sanchez ultimatum, Chelsea deal eyed | Football | Sport
Jose Mourinho target revealed
Jose Mourinho has made Milan Skriniar his top January transfer target.
United boss Mourinho was desperate to sign a centre-back in the summer, however, a deal didn’t materialise.
And The Independent claim Inter Milan centre-back Skriniar is now Mourinho’s top target.
The 23-year-old has impressed under Luciano Spalletti in Serie A.
Alexis Sanchez ultimatum
Alexis Sanchez has handed United an ultimatum: play me or let me quit.
The London Evening Standard say the Chile international is prepared to leave Old Trafford in January if he doesn’t get more game time.
Sanchez has struggled to impress at United following his move from Arsenal in January.
The winger has struggled to adapt to life at Old Trafford after becoming United’s highest-paid player on £500,000-a-week.
Chelsea deal eyed
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill the green light to leave Stamford Bridge on loan in January – and United are ready to swoop.
Cahill has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
The 32-year-old has made just one substitute appearance in the Premier League all season under the Italian and last month revealed that he would have to leave in January if things did not improve.
Express Sport understands that Chelsea will not now stand in Cahill’s way if the right offer comes in and the Champions League winner is now set to leave on loan in January, with a permanent departure now on the cards at the end of this season.
