Sanchez eyes Champions League glory with Man United

Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez is dreaming of finally winning the Champions League at Manchester United.

Sanchez has enjoyed a stellar career in Europe after representing Udinese, Barcelona, Arsenal and now United.

The 30-year-old has won many domestic honours at club level with La Liga and two FA Cups being his most notable achievements.

Aside from that, Sanchez also won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup at Barcelona but never managed to win the Champions League during his three-year spell at Camp Nou.

Ironically, the Blaugrana won the competition a year after Sanchez left them for Arsenal in a £31.7m deal in the summer of 2014.

Now the Chile international hopes to make up for that by helping the in-form United lift the Champions League trophy again after 11 years.

The Red Devils will take on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for the first leg of their last-16 clash on Tuesday at Old Trafford.

“The Champions League is a dream for any footballer,” said Sanchez, according to Sky Sports.

Manchester United transfer updates

With the preseason tour just a few days away, Manchester United are looking to finalize their transfer market dealings to give new players ample...

“I lived with that dream at Barcelona and saw what it was like. I hope I can win it one day and why not here?

“We have got through the group stage and PSG are next. It’s a big test but it’s 180 minutes of football – anything can happen.

“United are a club with so much history and is capable of beating any rival.

“If we win at Old Trafford and we don’t concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg.

“I think we can do that and I see this United team with a lot of chances to score in Paris.”

Sanchez made a 20-minute cameo on Saturday as United defeated Fulham 3-0 in the Premier League to move into the top four in the standings.

The match between United and PSG will begin at 9:00 PM (CET) on Tuesday.
