Alexis Sanchez has called on Manchester United to “sign big players” ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline and pointed to new Barcelona recruit Arturo Vidal as the calibre of star the club should be targeting.
United have added only midfielder Fred, full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant to their squad this summer, and forward Sanchez believes more signings need to be made if the Red Devils are to compete for major silverware, per Michael Hincks of Sky Sports:
“At United we have to sign big players, with experience. Barcelona just signed Arturo Vidal, who is a great player and my team-mate from Chile. He is an example of the type of players we need to sign in order to win trophies and compete at the highest level.”
