Manchester United are in pole position to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. The Chilean appeared to be on his way to rivals City but the Premier League leaders weren't willing to offer more than £20m for the player. That opened the door for United, who are ready to offer Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Arsenal to seal the deal. The fee is believed to be around £10million plus Mkhitaryan to land Sanchez and there are likely to be developments this week. Will the deal get done before the weekend?
Barcelona will hope to extend their unbeaten run to 30 matches when they take on Espanyol in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night. Ernesto Valverde's men have had an excellent season and now take on their rivals in the first leg of the quarter-final. Valverde had a fine spell in charge of Espanyol and has warned Barcelona must not take his former club lightly. "It's a derby and any gap is reduced as a result of the emotional factor," he said.
Manchester United are hopeful of completing a deal for Alexis Sanchez in the next 24 hours. The Arsenal forward looked to be on his way to City but their decision to pull out left United in pole position. The move hinges on Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving the other way but an agreement is believed to be close on that end of the deal. And reports in Chile suggest United are looking to wrap up Sanchez's signing in the next 24 hours. La Cuarta reports an announcement will be made by Thursday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
