MANCHESTER UNITED have paraded a branded tractor around Old Trafford as they try and complete a deal for Alexis Sanchez.
And the move comes just weeks after the Arsenal ace, 29, was pictured riding a farm vehicle around their training ground.
Wannabe farmer Sanchez seems set to snub Manchester City to take the field for their closest rivals.
And while United’s £505,000-a-week wage offer may have had a part to play, perhaps their tractor sponsors could have played a role.
Jose Mourinho is looking to get one over old foe Pep Guardiola by nabbing the ex-Barcelona flier.
And his board backed him by agreeing to plough more funds into the move.
But before that can happen the Gunners have still to agree personal terms with Henrikh Mkhitaryan who is lined up to move in the opposite direction.

The Armenian’s agent Mino Raiola is now in London attempting to thrash out the terms of the player’s contract at the Emirates.
And unless Mkhitaryan is totally happy then Raiola says he will not be making the move.
