Manchester United and Liverpool have a head start over Tottenham in the race to sign Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona after submitting official bids for the Chilean winger. According to the Daily Express, United and Liverpool are so far only joined by Paris Saint-German with real offers for Sanchez, despite interest from Spurs and Juventus.

Sanchez is a top class player and would be a great signing for Liverpool. The club would hope to get a deal done before the World Cup because his price would rise considerably if he has an impressive tournament.

The rumour mill is in overdrive at the moment and Liverpool are at the centre of most speculation. The targets that have been mentioned have all been interesting and Sanchez is the latest in a line of players that could be good additions to Brendan Rodgers’ squad.
