Chile starlet Alexis Sanchez has heart set on dream Manchester United move - report

Chile and Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez has reportedly told his team-mates he has his heart set on a dream move to Manchester United this summer.

According to the News of the World, Sanchez has impressed Red Devil's coach Sir Alex Ferguson with his form for Chile at World Cup 2010 and has enhanced his already growing reputation as one of the most exciting wingers plying his trade in Europe.

His performances, which have seen the South American's set up a last 16 tie with Brazil, have served to reignite Ferguson's interest as he looks to find a replacement who is in the same mould as Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sources close to the player claim he has dreamt about a move to Old Trafford since he was a boy and a move to the Premier League could soon be on the cards according to his team mates.

"All Alexis wants is to play for Manchester United," revealed a Chile team-mate, who did not want to be named. "He'd give anything for that."

Udinese have insisted they do not want to sell their star man, who has also attracted interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

However, with a move from his dream club forthcoming, it may prove difficult to keep hold of the promising 21-year-old.
