Manchester United gain a pacy, productive forward and stop their city rivals gaining another elite player. The first time he insulted me, I had a response, a response that I know touched the point where he really feels hurt.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reiterated his great admiration for Alexis Sanchez, but said he was not attempting to lure the Arsenal forward to Stamford Bridge when the two were pictured in conversation earlier this week.

"I don't question his passion when he's on the pitch, he wants to win, ' Wenger further added. All I can say is that Sanchez is a phenomenal player".

Recent reports indicate that City's January move for Sanchez may also fall apart, though, and arch-rivals United are keen to jump in on the move.

It appears that a conclusion to the transfer saga is nearing after Arsene Wenger left Sanchez out of his squad for Sunday's trip to the south coast, despite playing a full part in training on Friday and not suffering any obvious injury.

Manchester United stepped in the negotiations and are willing to offer more money and a player (believed to be Henrikh Mkhitaryan) for the Arsenal superstar. "I saw him walking normal, his scan was good", Wenger said. "And you will have more and more players going to the end of their contract because of that".

With Manchester United also interested, City are prepared to risk losing out on the player altogether. "Maybe you ask Arsenal, they decide his future".

"I am not going (to speak about it)", he said.

'If there is a fantastic opportunity on the table, you fight for that fantastic opportunity, ' said Mourinho on the chances of signing Sanchez ahead of Monday's Premier League match against Stoke. Never. Why should I change?' It shows you that there is no one at the top of the club making the decisions that need to be made.

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base. You have to try and that's it.
