Alexis Sanchez's replacement more vital to Arsenal than his destination

Alexis Sanchez's replacement more vital to Arsenal than his destination

Manchester City and Manchester United are said to be vying for Sanchez's signature, and the sale of their star player to a bitter rival would be a devastating blow for Arsenal.

City are not concerned if this stance opens up a route for another club, even arch-rivals Manchester United, to step in.

Arsenals Chilean midfielder Alexis Sanchez is likely to join Manchester City in a January transfer move.

Though they had been willing to wait until Sanchez's deal runs out in June to try to land him on a free, they are under the impression to wants to move this month.

"Look, honestly, I can not tell you much more at the moment about this situation", Wenger told his pre-match media conference.

Wenger would no doubt find it unpalatable to lose a player of Sanchez's quality to Jose Mourinho, but the comparison falls down thereafter.

Conte admits he is a huge admirer of Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez, who would be eligible to play for Chelsea in the Champions League if the club secured him this month.

Arsene Wenger believes Mesut Ozil could still stay at Arsenal, but has publicly confirmed that he expects Alexis Sanchez to leave the Emirates.

"I don't know ethical or correct, the word we can find to be speaking about players of other clubs, if somebody speaks of one of my players to say we are interested, I wouldn't be very very happy".

City boss Pep Guardiola refused to discuss the matter at his Friday press conference to preview his side's clash with Liverpool this weekend. "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". So I would not like my players to read what I've said, or see me on TV, and see the manager is talking about another thing, and then thinking that they are not important.

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base.

"No player would say, "Oh I hope he doesn't come".

"He's a great player and he knows very well that in my first season in Juventus we tried to buy him from Udinese and then he chose to go to Udinese", said Conte.
