Alexis Sanchez is hoping he can win the Champions League with Manchester United as they prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16.

United are in fine form as they have gone 11 matches unbeaten in all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December.

And, Sanchez, who sealed a move from Arsenal to United in January last year, is determined to win the Europe elite crown which he missed at Barcelona. 

"The Champions League is a dream for any footballer," Sanchez told the Mirror ahead of Tuesday's first leg against Ligue 1 champions PSG.

"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 are 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 missed out on winning the Champions League at Barcelona, who won the 2011 trophy prior to his arrival from Serie A side Udinese and again in 2015 after the attacker had already left for north London club Arsenal.
