And the 22-year-old could be joined by a former United star who was on £505k-a-week salary at Old Trafford.

The Chilean striker is currently a free agent after his contract expired at Inter Milan.

The Red Devils believed they got a real scoop when they prised the forward from Premier League rivals Arsenal in 2018.

He left North London in a £35million deal, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the opposite way.

For some reason, though, the 35-year-old just could not find his shooting boots – with the spotlight on his staggering weekly wage, he was scrutinised every time he failed to find the net.

In the end, he played just 45 times – scoring five goals – before he was shipped out to Inter Milan for two seasons.

He then headed back with the Serie A giants following a successful season at Marseille.

If you have not already guessed who we are talking about it is Chilean legend Alexis Sanchez who is set to make his second stint at the Ligue 1 giants.


Sanchez scored 18 goals in 44 appearances at Marseille and could form an excellent partnership with fellow striker Greenwood.

The youngster won player of the season while on loan at Getafe in LaLiga last term, was back at their Carrington HQ on Monday.

However, he did not train with the rest of the squad who had returned for pre-season training, instead he only had talks with United chiefs.

The one-capped England international was informed that he has no future at the club even though charges of attempted rape and assault against him were dropped last year.

And after Marseille headed in front of Lazio, Atletico Madrid and Valencia the club are in line to sign the striker in a deal worth £27million with a hefty sell-on fee included.
