Man Utd close in on Udineses star

The Sun reports that United chief executive David Gill flew to Spain to seal the deal and the Red Devils are hoping to wrap up a £27million deal for the highly-rated winger.

United looks set to beat City, Barcelona and a host of other European giants.

Gill met Udinese president Gino Pozzo on Tuesday in Barcelona.

Sanchez’s agent Fernando Felicevich said: “An agreement with City? Sanchez’s future is still very much wide open.

“We are working on it and, after meetings with City, we have other new appointments.”
