United want Sanchez AND Ozil

United want Sanchez AND Ozil

Man City were willing to pay £60m for a Sanchez back in the summer when he had less than a year left on his contract, which makes their reluctance to make a £30m bid - the amount Arsenal want - when he has six months left makes very little sense indeed.

Ahead of Arsenal's game, Sky Sports' James Cooper said: "My understanding from the Manchester United point of view is that nothing is imminent regarding Sanchez".

After months of speculation claiming Sanchez could be on his way to Manchester City, reports on Sunday morning claim Jose Mourinho's United are suddenly in pole position to land the Chile forward.

But despite United's apparent eleventh-hour move for Sanchez, sources have told ESPN FC that the club has been quietly attempting to beat City to the player since last August.

Arsene Wenger admitted on Friday that the Chilean is unlikely to sign a new deal at the club, who are reportedly prepared to sell him for a cut-price fee this window instead of letting him depart on a free transfer in the summer.

Guardiola wins record fourth Barclays award
The 46-year-old was named victor of the award as his side produced six league wins and a draw in December, 2017. The Spanish boss, 47, clinched December's award - to go with those earned in September, October and November.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund player has since proven Mourinho's doubts to be well-founded and the two men clashed in November, prompting the manager to drop the player from his first-team.

United made a shock £25m move for Alexis Sanchez earlier this week after months of us all assuming that his move to Manchester City was an all but certainty.

"Don't read too much into it, because even I don't know really what way it will go".

"I honestly believe Mkhitaryan is one of the best players in the Premier League, his confidence is just shot at United".

He says he feels sorry for Arsenal fans who will have to soon watch Sanchez play for one of their rivals.
