Jose Mourinho insisted that he wants to provide competition among his Manchester United forwards, which is why he is excited about the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.
While Mourinho has plenty of defensive and midfield options, one of his top picks, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is indisposed again which only gives him three players to choose from.
“We need that extra internal competition,” he said.
The Chilean international already took his medical on Sunday and has already flew to United from Arsenal as he posted a video on his Instagram account at a private airfield.
Looks like Alexis Sanchez is on his way somewhere. IT’S HAPPENING!
