Manchester City pursuing Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, United 'close' to deal

"It looks like Sanchez will not extend his contract", Wenger said in his press conference leading into Arsenal's trip to Bournemouth on Sunday.

Rivals Manchester City were leading the race to sign the Chilean star until the end of the week. The club are said to also be considering moves for Leicester's Jamie Vardy and West Ham's Javier Hernandez who left Old Trafford in 2014.

Manchester City forward Leroy Sane has insisted he has nothing to fear from a potential move for Alexis Sanchez.

So whilst Manchester City remain favourites, Manchester United can not be discounted from pulling off a transfer coup not seen since... they stole Romelu Lukaku from under the noses of Chelsea last summer. The players have two choices: Follow what you [the media] say, or follow me.

"Sanchez is an Arsenal player", Mourinho added.

City understand Sanchez is keen to leave the Emirates Stadium in the current transfer window but they will not be pressured into overpaying by the player's representatives, Arsenal or by the interest of any other club. "I don't think for the players it's a hard situation - probably they train the same way and it's not a dramatic change that isn't good in this period of the season".

But he said, "A bidding war is always beneficial to the club who can take advantage of it, but we are not in that". What we believe really is that there are some players in the football world, if you have a chance to sign them, it doesn't matter if it is January, March or July.

The Premier League leaders had a £60m bid for the Chile global accepted in August, only for the proposed transfer to collapse as Arsenal failed in their attempt to sign Thomas Lemar from Monaco as a replacement.

"But in relation to Alexis Sánchez I don't say a word". I'm focused on Liverpool, believe me.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, has stressed that Sanchez will only be allowed to leave the north London club this month if a replacement is found.

Sanchez nearly joined City for about £60m on the final day of the summer window, only for the transfer to collapse when Arsenal failed to sign Monaco and France midfielder Thomas Lemar.

"We had very good news yesterday morning".
