Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out going for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez this summer leaving the path clear for Antonio Conte to get his number one transfer target.
Mourinho revealed he wouldn’t make a move for Sanchez because of the forward’s preference to stay at London.
“If a player wants to move to London, enjoy London, we don’t want you,” Mourinho said. “If the first thing you think is where you’re going to live, think Los Angeles.
“LA Galaxy would be the first choice, then Vitoria Setubal in Portugal – to go to the beach every day. There are beautiful places to live and to play. But we want people who are really engaged by the first contact.
“We want people that, if I call or Mr Woodward calls some guy or some agent, we want people who are immediately engaged or dreaming about coming.
“This is the profile of players we want. If you don’t want to come to us, good luck, enjoy your other club.”
