Transfer: Man Utd Set to Battle Man City for Sanchez

  • Manchester City prepared to walk away from Alexis Sanchez deal

"The first signs he has shown in training are so encouraging that I decided to keep him until May".

'We are not on that case at the moment'. Therefore, bringing him in during the January transfer window would be ideal. But United were still the United of old. His last-minute equaliser against Lyon back in August, where he cut inside from the right and arrowed a fierce shot into the top corner of the net was typical of the spectacular input he has provided his side. The fact that Guardiola is blazing a trail through the Premier League has only made it more painful for his old rival Mourinho. "I have no problem if he signs with us now or in June".

Manchester City are interested in Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire but do not consider him a January target, according to Sky Sports News .

Money can talk, of course.

"How long he will be out, I don't know".

We've been big fans of Alexis ever since his Udinese days, and while he's no longer a spring chicken, he's still the only player worth any serious transfer consideration on Arsenal.

The Premier League leaders are understood to have offered £20million for Sanchez, but United's bid is closer to Arsenal's asking price of £35m.

They will also pay way over the odds for a 29-year-old player who is actually available for nothing in a matter of months.

It'll be interesting to see what happens over the next few hours and if United will be able to hijack Sanchez out from City.

Van Persie joined United because he felt his talent was deserving of more medals.

We should never underestimate the pulling power of Mourinho. "Like a player who wants to play football", Wenger said.

He has already proven his decisive quality in an ailing team, chipping in with numerous vital contributions - often in spectacular style.

Sanchez's reunion with Pep Guardiola will eventually happen at the end of the season as the Chilean becomes a free agent once his contract runs out with the Gunners.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez is in the last year of his contract with the North London club and doesn't look anywhere close to signing a new one.
