Udinese are braced for a renewed approach from Manchester United
for Alexis Sanchez.
Sir Alex Ferguson has long tracked the forward dubbed 'Chile's answer to Cristiano Ronaldo' and may be forced into a summer move for the 20-year-old as a number of European clubs are preparing to make bids.
Sanchez can play through the middle but has primarily been used on the right wing by Udinese scoring three times from 11 starts and 12 appearances off the bench.
His agent Fernando Felicevich said: 'Alexis loves it in Udine but it is indeed true that several offers have come in. It will be up to Udinese to decide on this matter.
'Sanchez has settled down well in Italy and is happy to be able to prove his worth in one of the most important leagues in the world.'
