Alexis Sanchez close to Manchester United deal, Man City to drop interest

Gareth Bale

Matt Le Tissier believes that Arsenal need to sign players to replace both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

But having previously said he still wanted Sanchez to stay as well, the Arsenal boss seems to have given up all hope of keeping the Chile global.

"There is still an opportunity for him [Ozil] to stay. That's very much open", Wenger told reporters ahead of Sunday's Premier League game at Bournemouth.

"Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez". But we want to keep Jack, and we have an opportunity maybe to keep Ozil. The World Cup victor has openly called for marquee signings in the past, and Wenger admitted that Arsenal's ability to fight for trophies could be just as important as the player's salary.

They'll even go as far as giving up Henrikh Mkhitaryan on top of cash, meaning Sanchez is left with a choice of forcing through a move to City or jumping to the team happy to pay the big money.

I don't want to give you wrong information. Incidentally he's won trophies with us.

Will he go to Premier League leaders City or have United found a way to persuade him to choose Old Trafford? "That's normal when you're at that level".

Or was the United manager making a public play to Sanchez by boosting his ego with such praise?

According to a report in Daily Star, some Arsenal players are really interested in knowing what Sanchez's plans are and that the prolific forward has discussed the same with them.

United Nations official Rupert Colville added "These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States". Like Trump, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida is a member of the Republican Party.

"So what is the player's calculation?"

But he will have to make up his mind by January 28, or his club will veto a move expected to be worth around £35 million.

"I don't question his passion when he's on the pitch, he wants to win, ' Wenger further added".

"I don't rule it out - at the back, in midfield or upfront", he said. "What do the agents do?" Instead, the Italian made it clear the onus in on the clubs who have already declared their interest, per Boswell: "I have great admiration for great players, I think Alexis Sanchez is one of these players".

City, meanwhile, have no intention of paying more than £20m for a player with fewer than six months remaining on his contract and they are reluctant to meet the agent's financial demands. If UEFA doesn't do anything about that, that's what will happen more and more.

"It is something you can not change".

A host of journalists, briefed by a Manchester City club official, have now revealed City's stance, which puts the Sanchez deal in jeopardy it would seem.

"You conclude that", he said. "Because the difference on wages between the big, big clubs - financially I speak - and us has become big".

Madrid are still circling for the 27-year-old and with De Gea's contract set to expire in 2019, the Red Devils want to offer a new deal to lock down their goalkeeper.
