Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: Can't stop Man City from signing Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

At his weekly pre-game press conference, Wenger was asked if Ozil could stay at Arsenal.

At the same time, United boss Jose Mourinho described Sanchez as "phenomenal", seemingly signaling Old Trafford interest in the contract rebel.

The United manager has complained recently about his lack of spending power compared to City but last night he moved quickly to assure executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward that he would not be greedy and demand more marquee signings in the summer should they land Sanchez.

It's been extremely well documented that Arsenal have a trio of players who are out contract at the end of the season- Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere.

Obviously, if Sanchez leaves in the summer, Arsenal will receive nothing in return, so it's certainly in their best interest to sell him now.

A host of top English clubs including league leaders Manchester City and their domestic rivals Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Chile global, though the Blues boss has now confirmed that the Londoners will not be part of this.

Wenger hints that Alexis can leave, but on one condition
Arsene Wenger seems resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez and will need a replacement to appease the already-angry fans. Manchester City forward Leroy Sane has insisted he has nothing to fear from a potential move for Alexis Sanchez .

He is also a design engineer in the defense industry and a Haitian immigrant who says the portrayal of his country is offensive. He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

Diego Martinez, whose Twitter profile claims he has written for March and Mundo Deportivo, tweeted earlier this evening that Arsenal had reached an agreement with Sanchez's agent, Fernando Felicevic, and that the move was completed.

Rio Ferdinand answered: "If he's got an option to go from Arsenal to Manchester City or Manchester United, as a footballer who wanted to win trophies and would judge myself on trophies being won, Manchester City looks like the place to go in that respect".

Manchester City are not prepared to compete with Manchester United's offer for Arsenal's striker Alexis Sanchez. However, unlike his two teammates it is believed that the former Bournemouth loanee wants to stay at the north London club. "So you are in a situation where you can not extend the contract of your players".

"I don't know if it's ethical or correct to be speaking about players of other clubs", said Mourinho, whose United squad has just returned from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai.

"In the big clubs you are in a choice".

But the Frenchman was adamant that he's committed to seeing out his contract. "I've never questioned his commitment or attitude". "I'm always committed. I'm here for 21 years". A move to Serie A would seem like a sensible one for the 27-year-old. And that's what you try to do.
