Former Manchester United defender, Phil Neville, has revealed why the Red Devils are desperate to secure the signature of Arsenal striker, Alexis Sanchez.
Neville said United want to bring the Chilean International to Old Trafford because of the current form of Liverpool team.
The pundit believes Liverpool’s current form is the main reason Man Utd are urgently doing everything possible to sign the 29-year-old before the end of this month so as to boost manager, Jose Mourinho’s squad.
“I think Sanchez, because I think of the form of Liverpool in particular, I think it’s maybe hurried up the need for someone to come in and not secure United’s second place but actually give them a massive, massive boost,” Neville told BBC Radio 5Live.
“I think United will finish in the top four and in second place but the form of Liverpool must be a worry because they’re playing unbelievable at this moment in time.”
