Red Devils linked with two Chileans

Alexis Sanchez's agent insists that Manchester United are still on the Udinese winger's trail. The Red Devils have long been linked with the Chile international, and were understood to be monitoring the situation when he moved to Udinese. An excellent showing at the World Cup finals further boosted Sanchez's already burgeoning reputation, which saw him linked again to Old Trafford. His agent has now confirmed that the Premier League giants are still on keeping tabs on the player. "Manchester United has been following the performances of Alexis since some time ago and it could be a possibility in the future," Fernando Felicevich confirmed. Felicevich admits that a move to England is an attraction, saying: "The Premier League would be a good destination for Alexis as he is young, strong and very fast, something very important for being able to have success in that league." However, Felicevich was quick to deny that a move was in the offing. "I do not think the time is right to talk about transfers. Udinese must now focus on playing well. These things belong to the newspapers," he added. "We shall see the status of Alexis is in June when the season ends, but he is well in Udinese."


Meanwhile, Felicevich's links with United has led to speculation that another one of his clients, Humbeto Suazo, could be on his way to Old Trafford. However, Suazo's club Monterrey have been quick to deny the reports. "There hasn't been any approach from Manchester United, neither with us or the agent of the player as he hasn't said anything to us," Monterrey president Jorge Urdiales said. "This happened some weeks ago and I am personally upset because it makes the player get distracted. "I would take this as simple speculation from someone. The agent of Humberto hasn't said anything to us and the player is calm and happy here in Mexico. "If something real appears we will pay attention to it but for the moment it's only a rumour, information that looks like it has been taken from a website or a newspaper. "It doesn't deserve to get too much importance from us because it isn't something normal and we can't handle rumours or speculation. We only handle serious and official information. "This isn't the best moment for talking about things like this as we don't want the player to get distracted. "Personally, I think that if a serious team like Manchester United is interested in any of our players they wouldn't be throwing out rumours, they would make an official approach, just like they did when they were interested in Javier Hernandez."
