Alexis Sanchez spent part of the January transfer window as the subject of a tug of war between Manchester United and Manchester City.

The current Premier League leaders, and Champions elect, let go of their end of the rope when the battle became too fierce, but it was certainly entertaining while it lasted.

Since then there’s been a string of players being linked to both the clubs, with the idea of summer battles an appealing one for both agents and media.

This week’s edition of SportBild names both Manchester United and Manchester City as clubs keen on the RB Leipzig player.

SportBild believe the cost could be as high as €120m in the summer if either of those sides actually want to go through with the signing, and the competition would certainly help RB’s aim to drive a price as high as possible before a sale they’d likely want to avoid.

But neither Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola seem to be crying out for a striker so much they’d part with €120m for the 21 year old.

A total of 14 goals this season is impressive for the youngster, but not quite €120m impressive, and a lot could depend on the World Cup and how Werner performs.
