Sanchez: United link
Manchester United target Alexis Sanchez admits his preference in the future would be to move to England.
The Chilean star has long been linked with a switch to Old Trafford and Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to have been following him since before he signed for Udinese in 2006.
Sanchez, after initially being loaned back to South America, has now emerged as a top performer in Serie A which has seen United once again strongly linked with a move for him.
Inter Milan are also said to be keen on the 22-year-old forward, but Sanchez admits he would prefer to move to the Premier League.
"I don't think about the transfer market but only about playing," he told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I look to my progress and I am pleased as I am maturing, even if I'm only at 40 per cent of my potential.
"I know that my future depends on me, and I know I am on the right track.
"The interest of Inter and Manchester United? It's nice to know that I am valued and I'd like to play in a big club but another season with Udinese should be good for me because I still lack a final piece for the final leap.
"My preferences? I like English football more because they go a thousand miles per hour, never stop, like me.
"But for now it is a problem that I pose, the contract (with Udinese) expires in 2015. It is necessary that I score more goals, assists are not enough for me. Then I have to learn to control better myself.
"I hope to score 10 goals, so maybe I'll help Udinese to qualify for Europe. Also the Champions League is a possible achievement. And if we finish in the top four you can be sure that I won't move."
