Sanchez future uncertain as United, City circle

Arsenal FC news Fans criticial of Wenger and the service Lacazette is getting following Bournemouth defeat

City believe Sanchez is keen to join them and link up with manager Pep Guardiola for a second time, following their successful spell together at Barcelona.

The Premier League leaders feel the overall price for signing the Chile forward this month - transfer fee, agent costs and wage demands - is now too high and must come down.

Manchester City are unwilling to pay more than £20m for the player whose deal at Arsenal expires in the summer, while title rivals Manchester United also want to sign the Chile worldwide.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho describes Alexis Sanchez as a "phenomenal player" and offers a hint that the Arsenal forward is on his radar.

The BBC reported in September that City and Arsenal reached a conditional agreement for Sanchez, but the deal fell through after Monaco winger Thomas Lemar decided against a move to Arsenal.

Asked about Sanchez, he said: "I understand completely why you ask this question; it's your job".


"That would represent a good deal because Arsenal will not have a star if Sanchez and Ozil go". But in relation to Alexis Sanchez, I don't say a word.

Reports of City's decision to abandon their pursuit of Sanchez unless Arsenal and the player himself lower their demands emerged hours before Mourinho addressed the press ahead of Monday's Premier League clash with Stoke City.

"No, it doesn't worry me personally", the Germany worldwide said in quotes reported by The Guardian. Okay the club wants £50million, £60m, because they want to replace me, they have to spend £50m or £60m, it will not happen, so I wait and I take a chunk of that contract in signing-on fee.

Sanchez then played the last 25 minutes, and Wenger insisted that his team selection "had nothing to do with the transfer market". "Alexis, everyone knows how good he is, but I am not going to answer about Alexis or other players".

However, Arsenal are reluctant to sell without replacing him and their first choice is Bordeaux's 20-year-old Brazilian forward Malcom.

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base. "If you can not give the players what they want, they won't sign a new deal". There is always a way to find a balance.
