Conte urges Chelsea to complete Sanchez deal

Conte urges Chelsea to complete Sanchez deal

Red Devils legend Gary Neville became embroiled in a passionate back-and-forth with Sky Sports pundit Guillem Balague on Friday night as he took umbrage with the Spaniard's reductionist opinion that Sanchez would only move to Old Trafford because of money.

Mancheter City will turn their attention from Alexis Sanchez and towards Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazilian midfielder, Fred.

It was perceived to be a tactic by Arsenal to coax City to make an higher offer in order to secure the player they have coveted for over a year, but Martinez's claim certainly suggests United's interest is very real indeed.

With his contract at Arsenal expiring in the summer, a move to Manchester City who were dealt a blow by Gabriel Jesus' injury, seemed to be wrapped up.

The Chile worldwide appeared to be on the verge of joining Manchester City but Man United have swooped in with an improved offer of £25m, according to reports.

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.


"Sanchez is an Arsenal player", Mourinho added.

Neville pointed out the difference in the illustrious histories of United and City as he claimed that his former club had a lot more to offer than financial benefits.

Jose Mourinho has drawn a line under his disagreement with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte. While not a Mourinho classic, announcing that your opponent is not worthy of an insult because you have contempt for him is a strong reply. "It's about keeping on winning, getting the maximum number of points from the remaining games and seeing what happens".

"I don't know [where he will go], you have to ask him which is his choice".

It is safe to say the passionate debates which surround Sanchez only go to show the exceptional talent he possesses would see him slot into any team in the Premier League, he has scored 60 goals and provided 25 assists in 122 league appearances after all. Wilshere could also sign a new contract.

Clearly, the situation is far from ideal for Arsenal, as no club of their calibre should be in such a perilous position regarding their two key players. Pep told me to play with freedom like [Lionel] Messi, not like Messi - it's impossible.
