World renowned sprinter, Usain Bolt, has told English Premier League side, Manchester United, to forget about signing Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer and concentrate efforts on signing Alexis Sanchez.
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist, who’s a huge fan of the Red Devils, called for Sanchez to leave Arsenal and join his beloved Manchester United.
United Manager, Jose Mourinho, wants to sign Griezmann this summer and the club are prepared to trigger his £85million release clause to do so.
Whereas Sanchez, 28, has 13 months to run on his deal at the Emirates, and Bolt says he’d prefer to see the Chile international at Old Trafford.
“I know Alexis plays for Arsenal – which he shouldn’t! Bolt told FoxSports.
“He would be great [for Manchester United].”
When asked if he would like to see Sanchez at United, Bolt replied: “He would be great. He’s a player who I’ve always said [we need] over the years. We need someone who is capable of picking up the ball and creating chances for other people.
“He’s proven himself to be one of the best.”
Meanwhile, the Chilean is refusing to sign a new contract with the Gunners, as his future is currently in the air.
