Lionel Messi Wants This Premier League Star At Barcelona

Luke Shaw has signed a new deal with Man United.

Sanchez's highly-publicised mega-contract at Old Trafford only helped boost the intrigue at the signing - was the Chilean the missing piece in Jose Mourinho's jigsaw?

Now United have ensured that they will not lose a player signed from Southampton for £29m in the summer of 2014 on a free transfer, with Shaw winning what appeared to be challenging battle with boss Mourinho to secure a future at the club.

Sanchez has managed three goals and four assists since joining United, which isn't anywhere close to the return they were hoping for.


"There have been ups and downs".

"If you look at my situation in the previous year and a bit, you'd have thought this could have been impossible".

Mourinho has condemned Shaw's attitude and focus in the past while he questioned the tactical awareness of the defender following an FA Cup win over Brighton in March.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are also negotiating new deals with Ander Herrera and Juan Mata, whose contracts also run out at the end of the season.


'I would think which stadium I am in, which public is in the stands but apart from that it is another match for me.

"I'm really happy to be in this form and over the pre-season I was working very hard to make sure that I gave myself the best opportunity to be able to put myself in the team, and thankfully I have done that". "I was telling him just now, he was doing things in the second half because he was reacting to my voice".

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes Chelsea FC will inflict a fourth league defeat of the season upon Mourinho and his Manchester United side to leave their rivals toiling in mid-table.

His creativity and drive going forward have helped Sanchez become one of the standout players in the country but if those talents aren't being appreciated at United, he'll inevitably have a problem.


You can imagine how emotional Ferguson must have been and how gutted the players must have been to have to say goodbye to the greatest manager that football has ever seen.
