Sanchez 'perfect for Premier League'

Alexis Sanchez has already been in talks with Manchester United and the Udinese starlet's agent says “he's perfect for the Premier League.”

The 21-year-old Chilean is well-known as one of Sir Alex Ferguson's favourite players and has repeatedly been linked to Old Trafford.

“For the time being we do not have any fresh news. I don't think he will move in the January transfer window, but maybe in the summer. We will see,” agent Fernando Felicevich told sport.co.uk.

“Yes Manchester United are watching him, and it could be a possibility in the future. I have heard that another Premier League club also enquired, but they didn't contact me.

“For the time being the only thing I have heard is from Manchester United. The Premier League is a very interesting destination for Alexis Sanchez but it is only Manchester at the moment.

“The price? I don't know, it is up to the club, it is not for me to discuss transfer fees. I think his style is perfect for the Premier League, he is very fast, very young, and strong, which I think you need to succeed in the Premier League.

“He's a young player with a very promising future. Sanchez has so much talent, that if he continues his progression, he could reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo."

El Nino Maravilla has been rated at around £15-20m.
