Inter Milan provide positive injury update on Alexis Sanchez

Inter Milan’s head of medical services Piero Volpi has revealed that Alexis Sanchez is going through a successful recovery from an ankle ligament injury and he could return to the playing field earlier than predicted.

The deadlines are being met.Mid-January [is the return date] but we’ll see. Alexis could even come back a little earlier if all goes well. He has not yet done work with the ball, but we hope that in the next few days we will have news about it. Everything is going well.”

ESPN pundit says United missed out on no-brainer signing from Juve

ESPN pundit Mark Ogden has said that Manchester United missed out on a no-brainer signing in the form of Mario Mandzukic from Juventus. The Red Devils had agreed on a deal worth £14m with the Bianconeri for the experienced striker but a deal surprisingly failed to materialise before the Premier League transfer deadline.

As such, they have to rely on Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and a young Mason Greenwood to lead the line this season, considering they have parted ways with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku. In a report covered by The Express, Ogden said that United should have taken the option of signing Mandzukic after initially agreeing on the transfer price with the Bianconeri.
